About
We are now closed for 2017. Opening date for next year will be Sunday 20th May 2018. The Skipness Seafood Cabin is a seasonal, family run venue that prepares and sells locally sourced, fresh seafood dishes. It also provides a variety of homemade cakes and scones. The Cabin is set in the idyllic village of Skipness, which makes up for its removed, some may say isolated, location with beautiful scenery, easy walks, beaches, castles and stunning views of the Isle of Arran. The restaurant aims to provide an easy going relaxed atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and leaves well fed and satisfied! We look forward to seeing you soon.

We had heard about this place so wanted to try it out. It was a wet and windy day but plenty of people had obviously travelled far and stopped to eat here. The food was excellent and well presented. Chickens roam around your feet as...More

By the adverts on the chalkboards all the way up to Skipness Castle and Smokehouse, we thought that the Seafood cabin was serving fresh wet fish, not cooked as in restaurant food. We decided to visit non the less despite raw fresh fish not being...More

My favourite spot for seafood. Beautiful walk to get there and then the chance to sit outside (weather permitting) with stunning views towards Arran. The seafood platter was first rate - very good value with enormous variety (but no lobster!). We had it with a...More

Wow what a lunch. A bit off the beaten track but well worth the effort. The place is quaintly rather basic but more than compensated with the quality of the food. It was a fine day so we ate outside on one of the many...More

We were completely wowed by the extensive seafood menu. The seafood and salmon platters are delicious, washed down by a bottle of Sancerre, in a stunning setting what could be better. They have high chairs for younger visitors, our one year old friend was delighted...More
