Opened by King George VI in 1947, the Torrylinn Creamery on the southern tip of the Isle of Arran still crafts its cheese by hand in open vats. Owned by First Milk Ltd, Scotland's largest dairy farmers' co-operative, it is home to Isle of Arran cheddar (isleofarrancheese.co.uk). Made using milk from three local farms, variations include Isle of Arran dunlop and an extra mature cheddar. It is sold through all the major supermarkets.
