FISH lovers are in for a treat next month when an award-winning smokehouse sets sail for Clovenfords.

The Tobermory Fish Company has been supplying its famous smoked trout to visitors on Mull for more than 40 years.

For many, the family business's tastes of the sea are among the highlights of any trip to the island.

And orders flood in from across the world for its mail-order service.

But, now, Sally Swinbanks and her team are preparing for a first ever business visit to the Borders to catch up with friends.

Sally, whose godfather is Selkirk and Scotland rugby legend John Rutherford, explained: "We have been coming on holidays to the Borders since we were children as my godfather lives in Selkirk.

"We deliver lots of products already to the Borders and we know lots of people down there.

"We still visit the Borders when we can but this will be the first time we've brought the business with us."

Around a dozen stalls are expected to make up the Clovenfords Farmers' Market during Saturday and Sunday, February 10 and 11.

The award-winning hotel, which was recently named as the regional winner of Inn of the Year and Bar Dining Hotel of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards.

And one of the regulars is Michael Rutherford, son of Sally's godfather.

Sally added: "When Michael asked if we would be interested in supporting the farmers' market we jumped at the chance.

"Our smoked trout is our flagship product and we will make sure we have plenty with us.

"We will look to bring many of our other products as well."

The Tobermory Fish Company was founded by Sally's grandparents, Hugh and Marjorie Goldie in 1971.

It recently featured in the BBC programme Landward.

The Clovenfords Farmers' Market takes place between 11am and 3pm on both the Saturday and Sunday.
