For over fifteen years the MacLean brothers have been baking breads, cakes and oatcakes from MacLean's Hebridean Bakery on the outskirts of Balivanich. A small, independent bakery, Allan MacLean remains still personally involved in the baking of all their oatcakes and biscuits. Produce is available at their onsite shop, through a takeaway and retail outlet in Balivanich, through local stockists including the Co-operative and via mail order. They make traditional biscuits, confectionery, pastries and oatcakes - oatcakes are wheat-free and suitable for vegetarians. Canape cases are made from Scottish oats, as well as large oatcake cases designed for first course presentation.

Oatcakes are the definitive Scottish biscuit, but there’s a vast range. The Larder got together with Mary Contini in the Valvona & Crolla Food Hall in Jenners to sample a selection.
