On this week's Scran Rosalind is joined by TikTok star the Hebridean Baker aka Coinneach Macleod. 

Coinneach tells Rosalind about how his social media following took off overnight and how he was once referred to as 'how a shortbread cookie might sound if it came to life'.

They talk about Coinnleach's love of his home and his native Gaelic and the infamous Scottish deep fried Mars Bar.

With a new book  just released, 'My Scottish Island Kitchen', Coinnleach shares his passion for Hebridean cuisine and food culture.  

We also get a great tip for Bake Off fans.
