Books and Botanicals

Join The Nature Library at Arran Botanical Drinks, Cladach, Brodick

Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September 2022

The Nature Library is excited to be part of the Climate Fringe Festival 2022, a community-led and community-organised series of events taking place across the whole of Scotland, bringing books to two new venues to highlight the importance of literature in times of climate crisis.

Books have a unique ability to inspire and inform, and in the midst of a climate emergency have become a more crucial tool than ever for communicating climate issues on both global and local levels, taking us to places we’ve never been and sharing stories by people we would otherwise never meet.

Join The Nature Library at Arran Botanical Drinks’ Beach House in Cladach for a weekend of stories on food, and drink, sustainability and land use, foraging, botanical art and more. As the former site of the Arran Nature Centre, The Nature Library will be celebrating its history while also looking at the future of Scotland’s coastal communities though books, talks and botanical activities inspired by the Beach House’s coastal and woodland surroundings.

Full schedule of guests TBA, check the website for updates!



About The Nature Library
The Nature Library is a reference library and reading space connecting people to land, sky and sea. Popping up in public spaces across Scotland, its travelling shelves hold many branches of nature writing from the classic to the contemporary, fiction and non fiction, memoir, poetry and children’s books. The Nature Library aims to take its visitors somewhere new — to the edge of the sea, into the mountain or to the top of the tallest tree.
