Visiting The Galloway Smokehouse- A Fishy Love Affair

The Lone Male On Tour- Visiting Galloway Smokehouse

It's official. I love seafood. Whether it's a seared tuna in a sushi restaurant, a Goan fish curry, Scallops served with black pudding or a fresh caught Sea Bream in a Mediterranean harbour. Whenever I have the opportunity I tend to seek out some good seafood. The Galloway Smokehouse is one of the best places a fish lover can visit in the UK.

Where smoking perfection occurs- The Galloway Smokehouse
Scotland's Solway Coastline is a Mecca for fishing. From the cockle pickers to the boats which head out of the harbours in search of the days catch. The Galloway Smokehouse near Creetown has their own boat which heads out in search of the best the coast has to offer. The catch then either goes straight for sale, or heads down to the smokehouse to be prepared for sale and the delight of everyone from top Michelin star restaurants to tourists like myself in search of some good food to take home.
