Why foodies should head to the Isle of Skye 

Evening Standard logo
Left, right and keep going - you can't miss it." You know you're somewhere remote when there's no 4G and Google Maps is but a dream. I've reverted back to the old fold-out map - and have promptly got lost. It seems to be raining and yet not raining at the same time here in Skye, Scotland's second largest island, and I'm being directed to the Skye Pie café. It's my first stop on a new foodie tour of the island that has been curated by Kinloch Lodge, Skye's Michelin-starred hotel. Skye is around a two-hour drive from Inverness, past the mystical deeps of Loch Ness and over the bridge that spans the Kyle of Lochalsh. Here on the west coast of Scotland the land dissolves messily into the sea, fragmented and crumbly. It's an oddly shaped island with totally different terrains in each of its fat-fingered peninsulas. I arrive in the midst of torrential rain - luckily, my tour starts with dinner. Candles flicker and fires roar as I demolish dishes from chef Marcello Tully, including a warm, local crab mousse and monkfish with peanut sauce and Parma ham. Dinner is followed by petit fours by the fire, a cup of tea in one hand, a bit of grainy tablet in the other. I'm in heaven. In the morning I set off on the north half-day loop. Most of the island sits north or west of the main town, Portree, but Kinloch Lodge is around half an hour south. I pass the foothills of the Cuillin mountain range, looking foreboding in the rain. I pass Portree's pretty walled harbour - and promptly get lost. Read more Cool place of the week: Skye Shepherd Huts The Skye Pie Café sits between the Mealt Falls and the Old Man of Storr (Skye's most famous rock) on the east coast, the landscape too remote for an actual address. It's a charming croft cottage that specialises in homemade pies - which come with a side of knitting. Half-finished projects adorn every mismatched table and jugs of knitting needles grace the fireplace - I'm itching to pick up a pair and spend the day drinking hot chocolate and staring out the window at the weather. Kinloch Lodge seen from across the loch As I make my way up the northern tip of the island I swoop around low-lying bays as bolts of light strike the Jurassic slopes and the car curls around the blustery cliff edges. The scenery is distracting to say the least: I drive keeping one eye on the bendy, one-lane road and one on the wild and woolly sheep. The bronze of the odd Highland cow provides the only real colour among the tones of green and grey. I drop down into the port village of Uig, home of the Isle of Skye Brewing Company. Skye has made beer for thousands of years and the brewery has a 10-strong line-up that uses local ingredients and mills its own grains. Then it's back south, past Portree, to stop at the Isle of Skye Bakery. For such a small island (the population is around 10,000), there are an awful lot of food producers and artisan companies. Chutneys, biscuits, the famous sea salt (made by a sustainable solar evaporation method) - it all goes into my basket. I set out the next morning to tackle the island's western foodie experiences on another half-day tour. This side is less dramatic, and there are bays and sheltered beaches that don't look like the ends of the earth. I head to Carbost for the Talisker distillery tour. Talisker has made whisky here since 1825 and been winning awards for almost as long. Read more Where to explore the Isle of Skye's creative food scene Further up the coast I meet "the Oyster Man". Paul McGlynn owns the Oyster Shed - a shack selling what are reputed to be Skye's best oysters, grown on his own seabeds in Loch Harport. I grab a takeaway box of oysters, mussels, crab and chips and sit outside on a sheltered lean-to (oysters are £1 each and you can bring your own booze). McGlynn has grown this place as organically as his oysters, starting with an old van he turned into a mobile kitchen after a disease decimated his oyster farm. He employs nine people and gets local children to direct traffic in summer as foodies clog up the one-road lane. This year he's offering small tours of the oyster beds and the chance to eat them on the spot. I demolish lunch with little decorum. The Whisky Bar at Kinloch That afternoon, I try and fail to find another stop on the Kinloch tour - the Isle of Skye Sea Salt Company's polytunnels. That evening I dine at Scorrybreac, a tiny, one-room restaurant in a townhouse overlooking Portree harbour. It has a reputation as one of the best menus on the island, with lush local ingredients cooked with French flair. A savoury crème brûlée does nothing to dissuade me; it's followed by a local fish, flaky to perfection, with spring greens. From fine dining to fresh oysters, Skye's experiences, much like its landscape, have blown me away. I might keep getting lost on the roads but I may have found a new foodie home.

Centre courted: ring hidden in tennis ball seals Wimbledon engagement 

Evening Standard logo
It was game, set and love match after a couple got engaged on Centre Court at Wimbledon. Rama Knight had hidden the ring in a tennis ball with "will you?" written on it as he proposed to girlfriend Lucille Howe. The couple are both tennis fans and their first date six years ago was a tennis match. Mr Knight, 39, said he had been waiting six months to pop the question at the right time after asking Lucille's father Rod in January. The photographer proposed after the quarter final between Roger Federer and Milos Raonic. He said: "One of the lineswomen came up afterwards and was hugging and kissing us. It was a really lovely afternoon." Actress Miss Howe, 44, said she was "so happy" they were finally getting married. The couple, from Beckenham, have yet to set a date. Miss Howe said: "He got down on one knee in front of everyone. He was holding the ball in one hand and the ring in the other. "I just started shaking. I'd even joked earlier that day about him proposing at Wimbledon. "We love tennis so it couldn't have been more perfect."... read more

Acid attackers 'should be given tougher sentences' 

Evening Standard logo
A Home Office minister today expressed concern that the courts are failing to punish acid attackers severely enough. Sarah Newton said the Government was talking to prosecutors and courts to encourage "very strong sentencing to act as a deterrent". In theory, such attackers can be already found guilty of grievous bodily harm and face up to life imprisonment. But Ms Newton indicated she is not satisfied with the sentences meted out to young people who carry acid or use it as a weapon. "We are looking at what further restrictions we can put in place by using the Poisons Act, by making sure that the criminal justice system understands how to prosecute these offences so they have very strong sentencing to act as a deterrent," she told Sky News.But there were mixed signals as MPs pressed for new laws to stop the sale of acids to children and criminals following the wave of horrific attacks in London. Read more Witnesses tell of man left screaming in pain after acid attack Met Commissioner Cressida Dick said current restrictions "absolutely" need to be looked and that it was "easier" than it ought to be to buy chemicals that can cause "horrific injuries". She added: "That is what we are talking to the Home Office about. Why on earth would a normal person need sulphuric acid, for example, why would you need that?" Ms Dick said there was nothing new about using household liquids like ammonia to harm people and urged parents to keep an eye on their children. "All of us need to make sure that if someone in our family appears to be purchasing such a substance, we challenge them." But Ms Newton said a ban was difficult because bleaches and acids that could be weapons are used in every home as cleaning products. "These substances will be under your kitchen sink, they will be next to your loo," she said. London MP Stephen Timms, who will be leading a Commons debate on the issue on Monday, said carrying acid should be an offence and its sale, which currently needs no ID checks, should be licensed.... read more

Acid attacks soar in London: Everything you need to know about the crime wave 

Evening Standard logo
The number of acid attacks in London has soared in the past six years with almost 1,500 reports since 2011. Resham Khan, 21, and her cousin Jameel Muhktar, 37, were left with devastating injuries last month after an attacker sprayed acid in their faces at traffic lights. Hospital worker Syed Nadeem, 44, was also targeted with acid last month in a moped robbery as he was leaving Whipps Cross hospital. In 2012 business student Mary Konye, 22, attacked friend Naomi Oni, a Victoria's Secret shop assistant. Twenty people were hurt when they were doused in a corrosive substance at Mangle nightclub in Dalston in April. The attack left a 22-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man blind in one eye. Video not available for syndication Acid Attack Victim Covered In Water Arthur Collins, the ex-boyfriend of reality TV star Ferne McCann, was charged with five counts of causing GBH with intent and 11 counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm. Collins, 25, and fellow defendant Andre Phoenix, 21, strongly deny the charges, pleaded not guilty and are due to stand trial in October. Q&A: What you need to know about the attacks: What types of acid are used in attacks? Sulphuric acid, which can be used as a drain cleaner, is one of the most damaging substances used, along with nitric acid. It can cause severe burns and dissolve skin and even bone. Chromic acid solution and patio cleaner have also been used in attacks, while hydrochloric acid or ammonia, found in bleach, cause less harm but are still toxic. Video not available for syndication Cressida Dick on how easy it is to get acid Where are they available? Read more Witnesses tell of man left screaming in pain after acid attack It is virtually impossible to ban the sale of all corrosive substances as many are found in household cleaning products sold over the counter at DIY stores or supermarkets. The pure chemicals can also be bought online with virtually no checks as to its intended use. Sellers do, however, have a duty to report any suspicious purchases. How could they be restricted? Campaigners have called for a change in sentencing guidelines and tougher restrictions on sale, including "upgrading" sulphuric acid to a regulated substance requiring a licence to buy it. MPs have also called for a specific offence of carrying sulphuric acid and a re-examination of stop and search powers. Experts say it is very difficult to prove any illegal motive in carrying it and, while a knife attack is attempted murder, being caught in an acid attack would be grievous bodily harm. There are also calls for household cleaning products to be weakened.... read more
