Kirsty and Fenella are both local lassies with experience of both catering and the fishing industry in Ullapool and the Highlands. "Our intention with the Seafood Shack is to offer top quality seafood that is caught and landed locally."

"We aim to deliver beautifully cooked seafood that has come from our waters in a manner that repects the quality of produce we are lucky to have on hand. We want to keep it good value and ensure that our customers will be happy and want to come back again and again."

The Seafood Shack

Local Fresh Produce

The seas of Scotland are famous for their seafood and shellfish and the west coast of the Highlands are home to some of the best prawn, crab, lobster and a variety of other species that are rated among the finest to be found world wide.

Being raised here, we are both aware of the produce we are fortunate to have on hand and also have family members working in the fishing industry and friends and colleagues whom we source from.

All our produce is caught locally and bought straight from the fisherman to be prepared and served, fresh and in peak condition. Our menu does change with the season and weather but hopefully you will get an idea of what we offer.

Functions, Private Events and Festivals

Although generally based in Ullapool, we do travel to other locations for functions, parties, events and festivals. One of the joys of the shack is we can hook up and travel to anywhere (within reason) and are open to ideas, please contact us with any queries.

In our first year, we have attended the Gairloch Gathering, Hebridean Festival and other local events and functions. We have a strong team of helpers who are happy to come along and can cater for larger events and numbers with notice.

Private parties; business events; functions; weddings; festivals; community events. Give us a call and we can discuss options.
