Iconic Highland bakery firm set for launch in Moray

Secret’s out when new sign went up alongside A96 in Elgin

Around 15 new jobs have been created in Elgin with the arrival next month of one of the Highland’s oldest and most respected bakery firms.

The Harry Gow chain has been operating throughout the Highlands for well over one hundred years – but will be opening their first store outside their home region when the new Moycroft Road premises opens in March.

Company director Fraser Gow said that the bakery are seeking to fill around 15 vacancies, both full time and part time, at their new premises.

“This is our first shop outside of the Highlands – and we are keen to let people in Moray know just what we are about,” the director of the family-owned firm told the P&J.

Founded by John and William Burnett in 1898 at Inverness, Harry Gow has grown to operating 15 shops throughout Inverness, Dingwall, Tain, Dornoch and Brora. It was the winner of the Scottish Bakery of the Year award in 2012.

Now the business has broken into an entirely new area with their shop alongside the A96. Fraser Gow added: “We hope it will be well received and are very excited about it – the location is, we think, of great convenience to our customers.”
