Kallin operate three scallop boats and take fresh catches from other boats operating around the Western Isles, the Isle of Skye and accessible areas around the Scottish mainland. Although they specialise in scallops, lobsters and crabs, they can also supply winkles and white fish. Fresh and processed shellfish and fish can also be ordered for next day delivery anywhere in the United Kingdom, and lobster can travel live to any destination. It is caught on the Atlantic seaboard off the Hebrides which can only be fished at certain times of the year, so is available from May until Christmas. Cooked lobster can be sent by next day delivery through the post office. King scallops are shucked, cleaned and placed in plastic tubs, before being packed in polystyrene with ice or icebags. Brown crab is caught both on the eastern and western seaboard of the Hebrides and is available fresh or frozen almost all year round. Hand-picked crab claw meat is a speciality and can be sent by next day delivery through the post office. Mixed hampers of any of the above can be sent by next day delivery along with white fish depending on availability.
