Fire crews remain at the scene of an award-winning business in Taynuilt after a significant blaze today.

Appliances from Oban, Bridge of Orchy and Inveraray were required after fire broke out at the site of the Inverawe Smokehouses at 3.47pm.

Tonight, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said four appliances remain at the scene.

The spokesperson said there had been no reports of any casualties. The crew from Inveraray was stood down earlier.

A photograph from the scene showing large flames has been shared across social media.

At this stage, it is not clear which part of the site has been affected.

Supporters have been extending their well wishes.

The family-run firm, Lorne Fisheries, trades as Inverawe Smokehouses and is a large mail order company and one of the most renowned smokehouses in Scotland.

It holds the Royal Warrant, a mark of distinction to denote supplying the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh or the Prince of Wales.
