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.


10. Giacopazzi’s

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.
