You will always hear people say that they have found the best fish and chips in Scotland. Well stop searching cos this is the place to be. Fish and chips of the highest standard. Just love this for a special wee treat after hillwalking in gorgeous Pitlochry.

A superb fish and chip shop with all good cooked to order using quality ingredients. The fish is superb and the plaice to be unusual in having a sustainability policy. Worth a visit if you like quality fish and chips.

My partner and I stopped in Pitlockry for a tour and we stumbled upon The Plaice to Be. Honest to God it was the best fish and chips I've had in a LONG time. So so good. When I go back to Scotland next I definitely plan on going back here!!

Visited this chippy while staying at Killiecrankie as Pitlochry is only a 5min drive away. Great selection of food on offer and staff were very friendly. All food was cooked fresh, will eat here again when we're up that way again :)

While on holiday in Pitlochry this summer we ate from this chip shop quite a few times and we found the portions and the quality very good.
