The best fish and chips I've had in Scotland by far, had them twice within 5 days, certainly recommend if you're up this way.

Takeaway fish and chip shop but very high standard. On Saturday night waited 30 mins to be served. Lots of hype and it was justified, very good fish and chips. You need a car on a cold night to eat in but great views over the bay make it a bit special. Next door is a ice cream parlour to... More

The fish and chips are amazing and freshly caught. There are only 2 picnic tables and the line is long but it's worth the experience.

Not a large place and don't be put off by the queue - it's well run and you soon move forward. We enjoyed a jumbo battered haddock and the same with breadcrumbs. Pinion of chips between us and bingo. Terrific food, great device and great views.

All factions combining with the smell wafting out from the fish and chip shop on to the promenade that attracts... More

We did not know there were no tables inside but outside so it was quite a cold lunch time cause there are not too many options around. Anyway the fish and chips was good but the burger was not so good. Friendly and hardworker staff.
