Sea Salt

Salann na Mara (Salt of the Sea) is a high quality sea salt produced on the Isle of Skye, which enhances and improves the flavour of food.

Isle of Skye Sea Salt Company is the first producer of sea salt on Skye for 300 years. We take crystal clear, mineral rich sea water from the pristine waters of Loch Snizort and by utilising an environmentally friendly, low energy, low waste process in our bespoke 'salt houses', transform it into pure, natural sea salt.

Our Sea Salt is produced entirely naturally so you enjoy all the flavour and beneficial trace minerals that the sea contains, enhanced by the moist texture and irregular appearance of the salt grain.

Our salt is available in two grades – Fine Grain and Premium Crystal.

Fine Grain can be used in everyday cooking or sprinkled on food as it is served. Try a pinch on freshly grilled fish.

As a result of our gradual evaporation process the crystals vary in size. The larger ‘premium’ crystals are perfect for use in quality salt grinders and sprinkled on fish and salads. They can also add something special to more unconventional dishes; try placing one crystal on a chocolate truffle to add a contrasting crunch and sharpness to the rich, soft texture of the chocolate.

Please contact us if you would like to purchase our salt.
