Big tastes from a small island

Fuelled by an abundance of natural resources, the island’s energetic Taste of Arran network of food and drink producers has put it firmly on the foodie map.

food 1A diverse selection of natural ingredients, quality local produce and great restaurants make Arran one of the UK’s finest food destinations.   At only 20 miles long and with a population of just 5,000, the range of food and drink available is more than impressive. There are everyday essentials such as freshly baked bread and traditional Scottish oatcakes, fruit preserves and mustards, locally produced and pasteurised milk and cream and a whole host of cheeses. Indulgent treats such as real dairy ice creams and sorbets, handmade chocolates, real ales and single malt whisky are also in plentiful supply. Seasonal produce includes herbs and vegetables grown in the fertile, volcanic soil, while locally reared beef and succulent blackface lamb is bred and reared within the space of just a few miles. With more artisan food producers than any other area of Scotland, Arran is a great place to discover more about the people and the processes behind this renowned produce. During your break, why not tour the Isle of Arran Distillery or Arran Brewery, watch the age old tradition of Dunlop cheese making at the Island Cheese Company or meet local producers at the regular farmers’ market in Kilmory? The Arran brand is becomingly increasingly well recognised and is synonymous with excellence; you’ll find our island produce on the menus of some of the country’s leading restaurants, including Andrew Fairlie @ Gleneagles and The Kitchin in Leith, but there’s no better place to sample the delights of the Arran larder than on the island itself. Look out for seasonal local produce on restaurant menus and pick up some great gifts to take home at many of the well stocked local shops dotted throughout the island.
