About Fascinating Fungi

Meeting Place: Main Visitor Car Park

We hope to explore the fruiting fungi at Hopetoun. With internationally important fungi lawns, and woodlands bursting with mushrooms of all shapes and sizes, you will be guided on a gentle walk to explore the fascinating world of fungi. Please note- we will not be collecting for the pot on this walk.

BOOKING ESSENTIAL. Please contact the ranger service on: ranger@hopetoun.co.uk or 0131 3193956

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Fascinating Fungi are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
