Spirit of Skye Festival organisers have scored a major coup by enticing Masterchef 2016 winner Gary Maclean to join them.

The Glasgow born 45 years old has agreed to be part of the big event which takes place at Portree's Aros centre on June 16-17.

Gary said "I am really excited to be playing a role in the Spirit of Skye Festival. Fresh Scottish produce is world class and I want to share with festival goers new ideas to bring out the best in flavours and tastes of what Scotland has to offer.

"The Spirit of Skye Festival is a fantastic blend of food, drink and entertainment and I look forward to being involved."

Gary can be seen at the Festival on Friday 16 June at 2pm in the Chef's Theatre.
