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.

We weren’t sure what to do on Skye so we booked this experience on a whim and it turned out to be one of the best experiences of the trip! John was very conscious to social distance, everything was very clean and felt safe. John’s story telling of the smoking from the conception of his venture to the actual process was very interesting and impressive! The salmon and various canapés were delicious and we ended up buying more salmon from John’s smokehouse later in the trip! Would definitely recommend! Thanks John!

Had a wonderful time at the Smokehouse tour. John went onto every detail and it was all really interesting. The tasting menu was delicious and the sunshine and otters playing in the water below all added to the magic.

John gives a wonderful insight into artisanal smokery with his unique island setup... His time as a chef at top London restaurants made for a really fantastic tasting experience. Highly recommended!

The smoke house tour was so interesting. John explained the whole processes in detail and it was fascinating to learn about his idea & how he came about starting his business. We then had a lovely lunch prepared by John which, as expected from his cooking experience, was totally delicious. We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Skye
