A sweet-seller from Skye has created the ultimate HebCelt delicacy – a stick of rock that says HebCelt right the way through!

Inga Bonk of Inga’s Sweet Treats has been a long-time fan of Hebridean Celtic Festival, attending every year from her home in Skye and this year selling her sweet treats not just at the Town Hall craft market but from her stall at the festival arena itself.

She hatched the idea of trying a HebCelt rock after testing Isle of Skye rock at her shop in Wentworth Street in Portree. The blue and yellow stripes of the HebCelt tent were her next inspiration, and the only possible place to get the rock made was immediately obvious – Blackpool!
