On this episode of Scran we chat to two of the recipients of the recent Scran Awards.

The Scran Awards took place at the end of June and celebrated the best in Scottish food, drink and hospitality.

First up you'll hear from Calum Montgomery chef owner of Edinbane Lodge on the Isle of Skye. Calum is a truly remarkable chef who has achieved so much in his career at such a young age.

At the Scran Awards he was named 'Best Scottish Chef of the Year'.

Rosalind also spoke with Stevie McLaughlin of Restaurant Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles who won the award for 'Outstanding contribution to the industry'.

Stevie tells Rosalind about how a chance timetable scheduling as a teenager may have impacted the rest of his life.
