Dozens of viral content creators attended an exclusive fine dining experience at the Drumossie Hotel as they showcased some of the Highlands best local producers.

To help showcase the local produce that the Highlands has to offer, Visit Inverness Loch Ness curated some phenomenal foodie sessions in Inverness throughout the week.

An exclusive sit down dinner was hosted by Nicky Marr alongside Visit Inverness Loch Ness organisers Emma Harrison and Jo Page at the Drumossie Hotel.

The incredible banquet was prepared by the hotels in-house chefs and beautifully served by their fabulous waiters.

A total of five courses were served at the dinner, ranging from fresh seafood to organic vegetables cooked to perfection.

The food vloggers documented the evening across their social media platforms where they were able to reach hundreds of thousands of followers who were keen to see their whereabouts.

Julia, who was one of the prominent content creators at the event, said: "Food and drink has been something I have been passionate about since kingdom come. I have written about food and drink for the past 10 years, and have recently started a business doing freelance PR and social media.

"I started doing food vlogging before it even became a thing in Aberdeen 10 years ago.

"People may have kids and hobbies, but I have food and drink, and that's just me. It may sound sad, but that's the way I like it."

All of those who attended the event said it was "amazing food and company".

Each attendee who wasn't from the Highlands was amazed by the local produce it has to offer and said "it cannot be missed!"

Digital engagement manager at Visit Inverness Loch Ness, Jo Page, said: "The Taster of Inverness came about because food and drink is a massive reason for people discovering new places and we have an amazing local larder to talk about in the Highlands, so we decided to do as much collaboration as we can with incredible local businesses.

"This week many Scottish food vloggers have had the chance to meet the local producers of the Highlands, hear their stories and see what they have to offer."
