Very small restaurant, literally a pavilion, perched above the beach in Thurso, with great views over the sea. The food is great, simply presented but very satisfying with great flavours. I had Cullen Slink, which wasn't over rich and creamy but full of real fish,...More

If you're looking for a fancy restaurant, this is not for you. However, if you like a more casual and relaxed feel, but still with high quality tasty and fresh seafood, this place is a winner in my opinion. The scallops were beautiful, and I...More
