Who and what is McCaskie’s?
McCaskie’s is a high quality family butchers in Wemyss Bay, operating in our original location since 1935 on the beautiful west coast of Scotland.

All our beef is exclusively from native British and heritage breeds, renowned for their natural marbling and flavour. Our grass fed beef is 100% natural and sustainable from farms well known and respected for their high welfare and animal husbandry.
All butchery and production is done in our Food Standards approved facility (GB1220) under the watchful eye of owner and butcher Nigel Ovens.
All our products are hand cut to size, packed and labelled and delivered FRESH not FROZEN.
