We will aim to provide our customers with the best quality service and great products.
We are one of the leading producers of traditionally slow cured smoked salmon in the world, based in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland.
As an artisan producer, we craft small amounts of our double Scottish smoked salmon for our discerning customers who appreciate its multi layered complexity and lingering subtleties. This splendid smoked fish, which was once seen as a luxury item, can be used in many recipes, from soup to sushi, as well as enjoyed on its own, or accompanied by a number of sides.
We are the heirs to 150 years of smoking tradition, located in Stornoway, on the Scottish Hebridean Isle of Lewis, the old centre of the herring industry. We are the last who smoke our own salmon in a seasoned brick kiln over smouldering embers, whilst using our own unique recipe. This allows the salmon to cure slowly over four to five days, as was the Stornoway way, rather than the more usual one day which prevails now.
The methods we use can greatly curtail our production, but it enhances the quality of our products.

We know all our suppliers personally, so you can rely that we only ever use the best products around.
Multi award winning, including seven Great Taste Awards from the Guild of Fine Foods, our Stornoway Black Pudding is made with Scottish oatmeal to give a unique texture and the moist deep flavour is a result of high quality ingredients and fine balance of seasoning. Essential in a traditional breakfast or perfect accompaniment to a range of savoury ingredients such as scallops, chicken, beef and pork.
The Scottish island bakery that supplies delicious biscuits to the world.
Stag’s baking heritage on the beautifully unspoilt Outer Hebridean island of Lewis stretches back to 1885 and although our bakery is now modern, many things have not changed since those early days.
Skilled people, attention to detail, traditional recipes and time honoured methods are still at the heart of this artisan bakery and it shows in our products. Only the finest ingredients and lots of care go into our biscuits and cakes and nothing is rushed. Both our people and our doughs are given all the time they need to develop naturally, growing in flavour and character through the process.

Catering, Delicatessen, Provisions, Takeaway Food, Yacht Hampers
The Good Food Boutique was established in 2010 by local foodie Emma Campbell-Macleod. The business is primarily a Delicatessen, specialising in hand made artisan products but also covers a much wider market of high quality food items for the real foodies as well as a selection of whole foods.
In addition, The Good Food Boutique offers a selection of catering options such as canapes for weddings, exhibitions, parties or work functions as well as a simpler working lunch of sandwiches and/or salads. We also can make you an original cheese board or "cake of cheese" decorated to your theme for that special occasion to serve instead of or even alongside the more traditional fruit cake, providing any biscuits and accompaniments as required.
