Local food & drink sources
Well worth trying are the local:
Prawns/langoustine (we get them from the gentleman in the image at the top of this page).
Hot smoked salmon
Our local fisherman
Who has just started delivering to locals and depending upon weather would be able to deliver Lobsters, Langoustines and crab. You would get these fresh from the sea that day and are totally delicious! If you can let us know in advance if you are interested then that would be best.
An excellent source of fresh local seafood. (2nd turning on the left after the Co-Op) in Portree (01478 612 288). Tip – Autumn is the best time for local seafood.
The Oyster Shed at Carbost
Has a lovely selection of shellfish. ( http://www.skyeoysterman.co.uk ).
The clean clear waters around the Hebrides support a rich selection of sea food unparalleled by any other region of the Great Britain. Some of the harvest is seasonal whilst other is available most of the year around if the weather is kind enough to allow the fisherman to land it.
Isle of Skye Baking Co.
Often have a range of local cheeses (https://isleofskyebakingco.co.uk/).
Connage Cheese, Ardesier on the Moray Firth:
Make their own organic Brie style cheese (‘Clava’) and others. Beautiful flavour, just order ahead for delivery to us and we will make sure it is in the refrigerator on arrival. They also stock a very wide range of Scottish and other cheeses.... the smell in the shop is well worth sampling! (http://www.connage.co.uk/)
