Loch Fyne Oysters Ltd. was established in 1978 by local landowner Johnny Noble and his friend, marine biologist Andy Lane. The company started with the inspirational idea of growing oysters in the clean, fertile waters at the head of Loch Fyne – the longest sea loch in Scotland - providing both employment for locals and income to support the estate at Ardkinglas.
Using their combined knowledge and enthusiasm, they laid the foundations for the company to become one of Scotland’s foremost producers of premium seafood and the home of our internationally acclaimed restaurant – proud to have served celebrities, film stars, Prime Ministers and even Royalty. Today, Loch Fyne has evolved to include not only the original oyster farm, restaurant and deli but also an award winning smokehouse, mussel farm and oyster hatchery.
Loch Fyne’s philosophy, ‘Nach Urramach an Cuan’ (How worthy of honour is the sea), encapsulates the way they run their companies - enterprise with respect for animals, people and ecology. Commitment to independent producers using sustainable methods to produce high quality foods.
Loch Fyne are passionate about delivering quality and flavour, making where they source their produce the key. They make sure that every oyster harvested, every salmon prepared and every fish leaving their shops and kitchens is cultivated, farmed or fished in accordance with their strict environmental and quality guidelines, taking advice from respected marine bodies. Where species are not plentiful they find alternatives and do not source fish caught by methods deemed to be harmful to the marine ecosystem such as deep-sea trawlers, beam trawlers or industrial long-liners.
When buying Loch Fyne, you can be assured that all their products are sourced according to quality, provenance and sustainability.
