Harvested by hand off the coast of Argyll, Mull and Skye on the West Coast of Scotland by qualified scallop diver of 20 years, Andrew Duncan.
Our scallops thrive in our Scottish icy waters giving rise to juicy plump discs of deliciously succulent, sweet white flesh and silky, apricot-hued scallop roe.

Meet the Supplier: Andrew Duncan aka The Scallop Man
Our Scottish hand dived scallops are supplied by qualified scallop diver of 20 years, Andrew Duncan. Every week, Andrew heads out in his boat off the coast of Argyll to dive in the icy Scottish waters for scallops.
Andrew came across scallops for the first time when he was working on a salvage job on a contract dive. He took the pretty shelled molluscs back to his father, who was delighted with the find and urged his son to gather more on his next dive. But the harvest that Duncan and his friends returned with on their subsequent trip proved too bountiful, so his father took them to his friend, David Wilson, at the Peat Inn in Fife.
Wilson told Duncan that he wanted to have these fresh scallops every week and he thought many other restaurants in the area would too. And just like that, Duncan’s business was born. Duncan now supplies eateries up and down the country, from London to Fife and Pitlochry to Penzance, with bona fide hand dived scallops, all of which are delivered within a few hours of being caught.
You can now enjoy Scottish hand dived scallops delivered direct to your home via Fresh Food Express.
