Scotland’s Best Chippies
Scotland’s best fish and chip shops
When you’re on your travels around Scotland, you will probably come across some delicious seafood, particularly down the west coast. Scotland is famed for its beautiful shellfish and salmon, it’s shipped out to some of the most famous restaurants in the world.
However, Scotland is also renowned for another type of fish – fish and chips. Yes, a good old battered cod and a mound of greasy fries. It may not be the healthiest meal, but very few things will beat it when you’re out and about in the van.
To help you find the perfect chippy, we’ve compiled a list of some of Scotland’s best chippies.
20 Harbour Road, Eyemouth, Berwickshire TD14 5HU
The location is perfect for eating loads of scrummy fish and chips. You might have to wait a few minutes as all the food is cooked fresh for each customer, but it’s worth it.

A previous winner of the National Fish and Chip Awards, this chippy has managed to stick in the top 10 thanks to its commitment to sustainable produce.

7. Mhor Fish
Mhor Fish and Chip Shop
75 – 77 Main Street, Callander, Perthshire, FK17 8DX

The only place to go for a white or red pudding supper in Inverness, The Dolphin serves up yummy grub all day and night.
Valente’s fish and chips
73 Hendry Rd, Kirkcaldy, Fife, KY2 5DA
If there’s a queue out the door and half way around the block in summer, you can be pretty certain of a decent fish supper. It’s just a shame it’s not open on Saturday lunchtime.
The Real Food Cafe Perthshire
Indooroopilly, Tyndrum, Perthshire, FK20 8RY
One of this year’s National Fish and Chip Awards winners, The Real Food Café is definitely a cut above the rest and incredibly popular with walkers in the area.

Another popular Scottish chippy with queues usually out of the door at the weekend, The Anstruther has won awards in 2001, 2001, 2006, 2007 and 2008!
Frankies Fish and Chip Shop Shetland
Brae, Shetland, ZE2 9QJ

Try to find a chippy further north and you’ll struggle. This café and takeaway is located in Brae on the Shetland Isles. It’s a tough one to beat, winning four of the categories at the National Fish & Chip Awards.
The Bay fish and chip shop
Beach Promenade, Stonehaven, AB39 2RD
As overall winners of the Fish and Chip Awards 2013, it would be wrong to hand the top spot to any other chippy. This chip shop is all about quality produce, using local suppliers and a strong commitment to sustainability. Plus, the food is to die for.
