Stornoway Abattoir


Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar owns the Stornoway Abattoir.  The Abattoir is a fully equipped, modern abattoir, which holds a full licence for trading and meets the required European Standards. Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar substantially refurbished these premises in 1993 and since that time has improved and maintained the facility to a high standard. 

The service this facility provides is a significant element of the crofting/agricultural sector in the Western Isles although due to the low throughput the plant is only open six months of the year.


The abattoir is based at the junction of Rigs Road and Island Road in Stornoway and the building is easily accessible with three double gates, giving all round vehicular access. Parking is also available by the front entrance.

Telephone bookings can be made from Monday the 26th July 2010 between the hours of 9:00 am to 12:30 pm Tel.  01851 706733.
