The Skye and Lochalsh Food and Drink Festival (Sept 17-25) provides the perfect excuse to visit this lovely part of the world, should one be needed.
A culinary feast is promised celebrating local produce – sweet hill lamb,
tender Highland beef, wild mushrooms, organically produced vegetables, handmade cheeses,
strawberries and prime seafood.
A tipple or two is on offer, of course. Savour the peaty whisky from the local distillery and sample beers from the local brewery. With 19 Taste of Scotland restaurants in the area, you can feast your way through the whole nine days of the
festival, shop for produce at markets, enjoy tastings, cookery demonstrations, an afternoon tea dance and much more. Ring the
