We specialise in producing wild and superior Scottish farmed smoked salmon

We are a small family run artisan smokehouse situated near the banks of the River Tay in the beautiful historic village of Dunkeld, Perthshire. The Smokehouse first began smoking 40 years ago to originally smoke anglers own fish and our master smoker Ronnie has been here 26 years perfecting the art of smoking for both wild and farmed fish. Each fish is individually cured by hand in small batches before being slowly smoked in kilns over whisky barrel chips and oak dust giving the salmon a unique flavour and texture. As a business we are totally committed to ethical and sustainable sourcing. Our traditional cold smoked and hot smoked salmon has been served to the Queen. We have also had several television appearances including Paul Hollywoods Pies and Puds, Landward with Nick Nairn and Visit Scotlands 'Brilliant Foodie Moments' advertising campaign.
Unique Brining – Slow Smoking – Hand Slicing
Here at Summer Isles Foods we believe our smoked salmon is the best you can buy.
Most modern day smokehouses ‘dry-cure’ salmon through salting. However we ‘wet-cure’ our salmon, which means the salmon is marinated in a blend of rum, brown sugar, juniper berries and black peppercorns. This form of curing the salmon allows subtle footnotes from the brine to release during the 16 hour slow-smoking process, producing a firm textured smoked salmon with a full-bodied smoked flavour. Furthermore, hand-slicing techniques ensure only the finest cuts of smoked salmon go into every pack.
Established in 1977, Summer Isles Foods is a small Smokehouse based in Alness on the Banks of the Cromarty Firth, in the North of Scotland. The smokehouse produces an extensive range of smoked salmon and smoked fish products as well as offering delicatessen smoked meats and a wide range of Scottish cheeses.
