Family, Friends, Community
Our local produce is supplied by family, friends and small community groups who cultivate the land and fish the waters all around the Isle of Skye.
It's a unique connection between people and the land which stretches back generations and involves uncles, cousins, lifelong friends and like minded people who share our values and commitment to quality and sustainability.
Certain ingredients and dry goods which can't be sourced locally are supplied by a handful of carefully vetted Scottish vendors who deliver to us weekly.

Peter Macaskill is a pioneering Skye shellfish growerwho just happens to be married to chef Calum's cousin Sheena.
Peter began cultivating rope grown mussels in the waters of Loch Eishort on the sleat peninsula over 30 years ago, initially as a way of diversifying his crofting activities. The stunning quality of the produce ensured success and Loch Eishort mussels are now an absolute essential for shellfish connoisseurs who demand the finest quality.
Loch Eishort mussels are sustainably grown on long lines at sea instead of the more common method of growing on the shoreline. As they are not dependent upon the ebb and flow of the tides, Loch Eishort mussels feed twenty four hours a day and develop a much more plump and succulent flesh with deeper flavour.
