I had the Sea Bass fillets - yum, and my husband had fish and chips which were also good. Friendly staff, bright and cheerful but mainly just good food, at fair prices.

If you follow for A96 for Inverness then the A9 to Thurso. This would take you to us although this is about a 4.5-5hr journey from Aberdeen. Hope this helps. Best Regards Brian
