McLaren Bakers

Established in 1893 and based in the Angus Towns of Forfar and Kirriemuir, James McLaren and Son combine a long tradition in baking the famous ‘Forfar Bridie’ with a wide range of breads, Danish, Teabread, Biscuits and, of course, Celebration Cakes.

Popular with locals and visitors alike, expect delays at the Market Street premises on a Saturday, as you compete with visiting football supporters, anxious to satisfy their hunger with a local delicacy before ‘the Game’!
