Salar Smokehouse opened as a small business in South Uist in about 1987, with the original owner designing and building his own unique kilns.
We are fortunate to be located in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt locations in the world where community and culture are still prominent, On a daily basis we are surrounded by fantastic scenery, an abundance of wild life, including sea eagles, otters, and wild deer.
Our award winning Flaky Smoked Salmon has won numerous awards since it was first produced on the premises and we aim to continue to build on past successes.
In 2008 the smokehouse was purchased by Loch Duart Ltd, producers of Scottish farmed salmon, who continued to produce the finest smoked salmon products and adding new products to the range available.
In 2015 the opportunity arose for the company to be purchased by Iain MacRury who will continue the legacy with a back to basics approach and the relaunching the famous Salar brand.
Today Salar employs a team of 6 dedicated and highly skilled local people all year round and also employs seasonal staff during peak times throughout the year. The high standard and quality of our original Flaky product enjoyed worldwide is a testament to the dedication and skills of our team who are all multi skilled and take pride in producing only the finest quality smoked salmon to offer the ultimate customer experience.
Our team is also dedicated to new product development to offer a further range of exciting new unique recipes to our customers.
