Had fish and chips twice during no put two weeks in Gairloch. These were just fantastic with lovely chips and the haddock was great in a nice crispy batter. If you’re in the area definitely give this a try. Really good value too

Up some steps off the main square in Strath the shop is somewhat hidden but provides good quality fish and chips. The battered fish is good and the batter crispy and not greasy.

After a day on the beach, what more do you want - Tasty, freshly cooked fish and chips! What more can I say, good portion size, can't complain about the price, this is the Scottish Highlands. Will definitely return when I'm next in the area.

The bad reviews come from 2014. Not from 2018. Crispy, light batter. Good quality fish. Delicious fish and chips. Some of the best I've had in a long time. A real treat.
