Rope Grown Mussels
Creel Fished Prawns (Nephrops)
Loch Eishort Mussel Culture, Drumfearn

"If you wonder where the prawns on your 'Sleat plate' come from then this is how it's done. The Drumfearn based creel boat 'Valiant' owned and operated by Iain and Kenneth Macaskill goes out in all weathers searching for the very best langoustines as we call them. Within a few hours they are in the kitchens of the local hotels and restaurants. Our picture shows the boys out early yesterday in and out of the mist on Loch Eishort. Every prawn tells a story! And Dad Peter grows some very fine mussels too." - Sleat, Perfectly Skye
