We have been traditionally smoking Scottish seafood in Mallaig for nearly 75 years. Handed down through four generations of the Lawrie family. Our traditions, process and family heritage stands us out from the crowd. Jaffy, the business founder learnt his trade in the 1930s during the boom times of the herring trade and his sons built our harbour smokehouse, which we continue to use today. The brick kiln is imbued with decades of slowly burning whisky cask oak shavings. Today, we insist on producing our products by hand and can do this without the need for anything more than hard work, fresh Scottish seafood and the ever-present Scottish wind to stoke the smouldering fires.

We have won many accolades for our Kippers, Smoked Salmon and Hot Roasted Salmon, our products have been described as delicate and moist with the “perfect balance of oil, salt and smoke in each bite”.

Our aim is to carry on producing high quality, hand crafted, sustainably sourced Scottish smoked seafood.

Our products are available from our online shop (www.jaffys.co.uk) and can be delivered anywhere within the UK or from our shop at Station Road, Mallaig.
