Who we are

Founded by Iain McKellar since 2007, the business sells hand-harvested seaweed. Our range of seaweed is harvested from the Isle of Bute on the west coast of Scotland; a location known for high-quality clean sea waters.

sustainability 

The seaweed is separated from the rocks when the tide is low. Iain uses hand harvesting because it maintains the original quality of the kelp. Harvested at the right time and during the right season, guarantees high-quality seaweed and kelp products.
