Peat and Diesel frontman Calum 'Boydie' MacLeod gatecrashed an Ullapool Monday night gig to play the cheese grater and spoon.

Popular ceilidh band, the Black Isle Peas, had joined in on folk singer Matt Morrow's gig at The Arch Inn, when their good friend Boydie, frontman of the popular Stornoway band Peat and Diesel, decided to join in.

Unfortunately there was no spare guitar to play so he improvised and went into the Arch Inn's kitchen, returning with a cheese grater and spoon as musical instrument of choice.

The Black Isle Peas said: "You just never know what will happen at a Black Isle Peas gig!! Especially when Boydie turns up with a cheese grater and a spoon – must admit no one saw this coming.

"What a laugh it was! I wonder what he will turn up with next Monday – a teapot?!"

The Black Isle Peas have since been asked back on October 2 at 9pm for the final Monday gig of the season at The Arch Inn, Ullapool.
