Organised by Skye and Lochalsh Food Link, and supported by the Regional Food Fund and local businesses, the last awards took place in 2019 and winners included Edinbane Lodge, Beth’s Deli and Café, the Cuillin Hills Hotel and the Old Inn.

Owing to the uncertainty of Covid-19, the Awards will not take place in 2022.

We hope to return again in 2023 when it is safe to do so.

Nominations for the best local food champions will be sought shortly and everyone will have a chance to vote for their favourite business.  

Award categories are:

  • Best Restaurant
  • Best Restaurant with Rooms
  • Best Café or Coffee Shop
  • Best Community Café
  • Best Pop-up Food Event
  • Best Hotel
  • Best B&B or Guest House
  • Best Retailer
  • Best Pub
  • Best Newcomer


The criteria for nomination are not just based on volume of sales but on regularity of orders, range of produce supplied and a strong commitment to supporting and promoting local food, this allows the smaller businesses who support local food producers to be recognised as well.

Once nominations are in, winners are chosen and announced at a prestigious ceremony which has become the highlight of the local food calendar on Skye.
