J Lawrie & Sons have been traditionally smoking Scottish seafood in Mallaig for nearly 75 years. Handed down through four generations of the Lawrie family, their traditions, process and family heritage stands them 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 the harbour smokehouse, which they continue to use today. The brick kiln is imbued with decades of slowly burning whisky cask oak shavings.

Today, J Lawrie & Sons insist on producing their 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.

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

This artisan producer’s aim is to carry on creating high quality, hand crafted, sustainably sourced Scottish smoked seafood.

Products are available from their online shop and can be delivered anywhere within the UK or from the shop at Station Road, Mallaig.
