Producing and serving the finest whisky smoked salmon

Welcome to the Falls of Dochart Smokehouse

smoked salmon Here at the Falls of Dochart Smokehouse and Scottish Tasting Counter we are guided by two simple principles – to produce and serve the finest whisky smoked salmon.

Our family-owned business is located in the village of Killin, at the head of Loch Tay. The river Dochart flows through the village. The Dochart is the most westerly of the Tay’s tributaries rising in the hills around Crianlarich, flowing gently along Glen Dochart until the pace picks up culminating in the majestic Falls of Dochart at the entrance to the village. Loch Tay is a further mile down-stream.

To produce our unique subtle whisky taste, we source the finest aged whisky casks and pound them into dust. This dust creates our aromatic smoke, which gives the salmon a rich, full-bodied flavour. Our small local team passionately care about every step of the process, from curing and smoking through to slicing and packaging - all done by hand.

Our specially selected salmon are inspected on arrival at the smokehouse by one of the family whose relationship with the Tay system goes back 60 years. Our salmon are reared in the waters of the Hebrides and the sheltered lochs of north east Scotland. We are committed to sourcing salmon from ethical and sustainable suppliers who adhere to the highest standards of conservation and quality control.

 We are now offering Sourdough and Ciabatta from the Wild Hearth Bakery in Comrie in our web shop FREE DELIVERY for orders over £50 on when you buy our Tasting bag 

Our Smoked Salmon

Our salmon is cured for up to 24 hours before the smoking process begins, this removes moisture from the salmon and adds depth to the flavour. Once the curing process has been completed, the salmon is left to dry before
being moved to our smoker.

Cold Smoked Salmon

Smoked over our ground down whisky casks at low heat, we ensure the smoking process is never rushed - the salmon is ready when it’s ready. Once smoked we hand slice and package. That unmistakable taste of freshly smoked Salmon with a subtle hint of whisky – Glorious!!!
