Eilidh was only 14 years old when she lost her life in the Manchester bombing and was a huge music fan.

She played the pipes in her local pipe band, and the Trust continues her musical journey by supporting music education for children and young people.

Artists contributing to the lockdown cookbook include Skerryvore, Tide Lines  The Vatersay Boys and Mànran.

Commenting on the book’s release, organiser Donald Macleod commented: “This year has proven incredibly challenging for musicians and for charities and I am so grateful that they have come together for this cause, which hopefully hits the right note.

“Eilidh was an incredibly talented individual and I would urge everyone who is able to dig deep to raise funds for the Trust established in her name, which supports music education for children and young people.”
