On this episode of Scran, Rosalind visits the beautiful Isle of Skye where she meets many producers and people working in various food and drinks businesses across the island.

First stop was the Isle of Skye Sea Salt company where she met Meena and Chris Watts who, having moved from London, were determined to set up a long-term sustainable business.

The Three Chimneys, one of Skye's most popular restaurants and guest houses, was Rosalind's next stop where she caught up with Head Chef Scott Davies. This interview will make you hungry, we promise!

Rosalind also paid a visit to Isle of Skye Free Range where she met Glenys and Alistair McClean who can normally be found working their croft to produce quality free range poultry and meat products for the local market.

The final stop on this tour was the pier in Dunvegan where Rosalind met local fisherman Kevin McKinnon of Loch Dunvegan Shellfish who told her how fishing is something you'll fall in love with despite the demanding conditions and variable weather.
