Kirsty Scobie

Fenella Renwick and Kirsty Scobie co-own and run The Seafood Shack, a celebrated food truck serving sustainable local seafood in the fishing village of Ullapool in the Scottish Highlands. Their efforts have earned them numerous awards, including The BBC Radio 4 Food & Farming Award, the Scottish Food Awards, and most recently, the Jane Grigson Trust Award. 

Fenella grew up in the village of Achmore, where she was immersed in fishing and seafood through her mother’s successful seafood restaurant in in Kyle of Lochalsh and on boats with her father, a local fisherman. She lives with her husband, a commercial diver and part-time fisherman, and their two boys. Kirsty was born and raised on a farm just outside Ullapool. From a young age, she helped cook for visitors to the farm’s guest cottages, and has worked in food and catering ever since. Her partner, Josh, owns one of the local fishing boats and lands much of the seafood that is served at The Seafood Shack.
