On this episode of Scran, I travel from Speyside to the Moray coast to speak to business owners and staff about reopening following lockdown.

Firstly, I chat to owner of Bootlegger's Bothy and the Bothy Bistro, Ruth Scott and head chef Andy Fyfe about the pop up kitchen overlooking the Moray coast and how the pandemic has made them become more creative.

I then head to Elgin to speak to global brand ambassador for Glen Moray, Iain Allan about their dial a dram service and reopening - plus he shares his top whiskies.

A bonus from last week's episode, Danny Grant head chef at the Craigellachie talks about why Scotland’s food larder is more than enough to cook up a storm.

Finally Charles Gladstone from Glen Dye cabins and cottages talks about the rising popularity of a staycation and why Scotland is a dream destination.
