A fish supper takes some battering.
Fish in crispy batter, plump chips, with salt ‘n’ sauce if you’re in Edinburgh, salt ‘n’ vinegar in Glasgow. Guzzled outside in the cool of the evening, washed down with a glug of Irn Bru.
Here are 10 great chippies that your tastebuds will thank you for visiting:
There’s Bay Fish and Chips in Stonehaven. It was UK ‘chippy of the year’ in 2013.
At Anstruther Fish Bar you can polish off your fish supper overlooking the harbour. Watch out for the hungry seagulls though.
The most northerly fish and chips in the UK are at Frankie’s in Shetland. Oban Fish and Chip Shop in the town’s George Street is a stone’s throw from postcard scenery of Oban Bay.
Hungry? Ashvale Fish Restaurant in Aberdeen serves the Ashvale Whale - 1lb of haddock fillet.
Glaswegians smother their suppers from the Merchant Chippie in the High Street with salt ‘n’ vinegar.
It’s salt ‘n’ sauce at Edinburgh favourite, L’Alba D’oro in Henderson Row.
Walking in The Trossachs is great for working up an appetite. Sort it with a fish supper at Mhor Fish in Callendar. Or head ‘doon that watter’ to the Isle of Bute, and Rothesay’s traditional West End Café.
In the mood for a fish supper now. But where’s the best?
