The best fish and chips in Scotland

Fish and chips - a stalwart of a holiday in the UK, and here on Scotland's west coast, you'll find the best in the country. Try out The Chippy at Portree on the Isle of Skye - situated on the harbour and delivering perfect sea views as well as the best standard of fish and chips.  

At Mull's Tobermory, try out the Fish and Chip Van, serving up incredible King Scallops and other fresh catches of the day from the surrounding waters - little wonder it was once given royal approval from the King himself.  

MSC certified battered haddock served with skin on fries and steamed green vegetables.


Fine Dining

At the other end of the scale, celebrate shellfish and catch of the day from Skye's waters at the Loch Bay restaurant. With just 18 seats, this seafood restaurant offers a multiple course menu - showcasing the fruits of this island's incredible landscape and natural larder.  

The Isle of Gigha's Boathouse Restaurant has been recognised by the Michelin Guide for over five years now. You'll find it in the perfect spot, overlooking Ardminish Bay - where you can enjoy fresh seafood from the surrounding waters - a stunning way to discover the culinary magic of Scotland's islands.  

The Colonsay Pantry sits right by the pier on Colonsay, giving stunning views looking out to Jura. The menu is full of fabulous seafood, straight from local boats.  

With such magical spots and experiences to enjoy, you'll think you're on the other side of the world, but Scotland's islands offer the same kind of magic - they're just much closer than you think. It's time for you to discover them.
