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.

The seafood we use is sourced as close to the village as possible - seasons and weather can mean we have to get from various place but it is all fersh, cooked to order and we ensure our prawns are creel caught and scallops hand dived so as to get the best taste and minimise environmental impact.

Functions, Private Events and Festivals

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.
