Wester Ross Fisheries
Founded in 1977 by Robin Bradley and Alan Mann, Wester Ross Fisheries is the oldest independent salmon farm in Scotland, rearing salmon from fry stages through the grower stage to harvesting and primary processing. The farm is now owned by four of the original employees, who joined forces to purchase it when the previous owners retired. Business is busy, with seawater sites at Loch Kannaird, Loch Broom and Little Loch Broom, a freshwater smolt production unit at Elphin and a processing unit in Dingwall. They supply salmon to restaurants around the country (and even to some in the States), and both smoked and fresh salmon are available from their online shop (realscottishsalmon.co.uk). Delivery is by overnight courier anywhere in mainland UK and the Isle of Skye.
