A tour of the uniquely designed smokehouse which is inspired to look like a traditional Scottish building called a cleit. A peat roof and stone walled buildings from the bygone years. (Search on google St. Kilda and Cleit).
Learn how the local alder wood is prepared by hand using an axe and used to fire the smokehouse and to create the smoke. I will talk about the various techniques of hot and cold smoking, wet and dry curing.
Smell the secret 6 spice mix blend used in the current recipe to cure the salmon. Can you guess any of the spices?
Finally the best bit tasting, Sample 4 different canapes of hot smoked salmon.
A twist on a Cullen Skink, Smoked salmon mousse on beetroot and blini, two additional tasting spoons.

The award-winning, Isle of Skye Smokehouse was launched in 2017 by John Corfield who’s passion and dedication for excellence was forged from his time working as a Chef at the Ritz Hotel and Gordon Ramsay’s 3 Michelin Star Restaurant in London.

With 10 year's professional cheffing experience and 8 years running Scalpay View B&B the opening of the smokehouse was a logical progression after perfecting the art of hot smoking salmon for his B&B guests. The business is a relatively new startup home business. Already picking up awards for the Alder Hot Smoked Salmon and supplying high-end hotels and restaurants throughout Skye and Lochlash.

Her skal du være

You will visit the external workings of the smokehouse and a tour outside the kitchen. Also we will have a talk about the smoking processes. Canapes and drinks in the lounge of our B&B overlooking the sea loch and Isle of Scalpay. Might be outside on good weather days. Look out for the resident otters. Due to strict food hygiene practice, there will be no access inside the kitchen area or smokehouse. Don't worry this won't detract from the tour.

The backdrop for this experience is absolutely gorgeous. We were treated to some really interesting stories about how he got the smokehouse set up and the process of smoking the fish. Finally, we had a really nice tasting that showcased the wonderful finished product. We really enjoyed the entire experience, especially the tasty salmon!!

John was a fantastic, friendly host and very passionate and knowledgeable. The story of how he was inspired to set up the smokehouse was fascinating. We loved the history and learning about the process. The afternoon tea was delicious and served with real flair, showing John’s background as a chef in top kitchens. We were lucky that the weather was good enough to sit outside, enjoying the idyllic setting and the awe inspiring view and watching the baby otters play in the water below.

If you are on the Isle of Skye please pay John a visit. He is such a welcoming person and we had a wonderful time at the Isle of Skye Smokehouse. The walk through of how the product is made was great and the tasting platter John prepared was immaculate. John has worked really hard to perfect his product and is rightly proud of how fantastic it is.

If you’re looking for something interesting, thought provoking and quite frankly delicious to experience on Skye then this is your guy! We had a fab few hours learning about John’s smokehouse and the background to the processes. The food was absolutely delicious - can’t wait to have the smoked salmon again when we’re on our next beach!!
