the maclean’s Story
from wheat to Winners

For four generations the Maclean family has hand-baked their products in Scotland. Originally from the Western Isles, we now produce our indulgent Traditional Shortbreads and Sweet Biscuits together with our range of enjoyable and energising Oatcakes at our modern bakery in Forres, centrally located between the Highland, Speyside, and Grampian regions of Scotland.
