The Isle of Skye Baking Company
Operating from their home kitchen until they moved into their own bakery with shop, cafe and art gallery in 2010, Barry and Liza Hawthorne run an independent bakery set up originally to make oatcakes and shortbread for Skye. A pastry chef by profession, Barry trained under a German master baker and now uses his skills to produce an increasing range of biscuits, oatcakes and fruitcake, tablet, artisan breads and a new range of jams and chutneys. Products can now be bought directly from the bakery, online, at Portree farmers' market or various other events around the Highlands, announced on their website. Their online shop also sells a selection of hampers built around oatcakes, cheese, baking and preserves.
