The best of Scotland 

In honour of Scottish Food Fortnight, we’re celebrating our dedicated Scottish M&S Select Farmers and suppliers throughout the month.

Great Scots 

The first M&S in Scotland opened in Dundee in 1918. Now, more than a century later, we have more than 100 Scottish stores and are proud to work with upwards of 4,500 Scottish M&S Select Farmers and food producers.

From makers of buttery shortbread to suppliers of tender Scottish beef, we work with the very best Scottish producers – and now more than ever, supporting them and the country’s incredible larder really matters.

One shining example of our fantastic Scottish produce is our Scottish salmon. It’s responsibly sourced from the crystal-clear waters surrounding Scotland’s stunning west and northern coasts and is RSPCA Assured. We work with trusted producers like Sarah Last, manager at Nevis salmon farm in Mallaig, to produce salmon that’s perfectly flaky and succulent.

“There’s no secret as to why M&S salmon tastes so good,” Sarah says. “Our salmon are kept in this beautiful coastal environment, swimming against strong currents and tides so they grow into really healthy fish.”

Heavenly haggis

When it comes to Scotland’s national dish, it’s got to be Macsween haggis. Founded in 1853, this third-generation, family-run business handcrafts small batches using only the finest ingredients.

Serve our traditional haggis or vegetarian haggis with neeps and tatties or as part of an epic full Scottish brekkie.

Prime beef

Supplied by M&S Select Farmers like Robert Barbour and his sons Graham and Scott, from Crailinghall in Jedburgh, all our beef is top-quality and produced to high environmental and welfare standards. What’s more, we’re the only national retailer that can trace 100% of our beef back to the farm and animal it came from, because we know that great-tasting beef starts in the field.

Colour it gin

Expertly created by Hamish Martin from The Old Curiosity Distillery in Edinburgh, our colour-changing gin is made with fragrant botanicals from the distillery’s secret herb garden, and magically changes colour when tonic is added. The gins are amazing served with tonic and herbs or citrus, or try the lavender gin in a Fleur Collins cocktail.

Luxury shellfish 

Want to pull out all the stops at your next dinner party? Look no further than our range of incredible Scottish shellfish. 

We’ve sourced the majority of our brown crab from the Orkney Fishermen’s Society since 2011. The clear, shallow waters surrounding the Orkney Islands produce the sweetest, most delicious brown crab on the market. Brown crab meat is amazing in risottos, salads, sandwiches and pasta dishes. 

King scallops are usually seen on Michelin-starred menus, but now they’re in our freezers, too. Our Scottish king scallops are caught by hand from the warm seabed around the Orkney Islands, and the divers only select the biggest, best fully matured scallops. They’re packed with flavour and have a succulent, firm texture. 

Delicious in paella or served with buttery gnocchi, our Collection whole shell-on wild langoustines are caught off the coast of Scotland. They’re amazingly sweet and tender and frozen for maximum freshness.
