About Us

The Trawler Restaurant and Fish and Chips shop, on the North East coast in the Highlands, is situated in the beautiful coastal village of Golspie in Sutherland, home to the world famous Dunrobin Castle.

Founded in 1964, The Trawler is a popular restaurant and takeaway, which has built an excellent reputation locally for the quality of its food. We are the 100th Fish and Chip Shop in the UK to have received the Fish and Chip Quality Award from the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) for our tasty food. We also prepare many European cuisine and seafood dishes to our own high standards.

All our food is fresh and cooked to order so it is well worth the wait.

Our fish  

We use sustainably sourced North Atlantic Haddock, cooked in a crispy batter by our fantastic cooks.  The fish can also be served breaded or in a gluten free batter.  Our fishcakes are also made on the premises to Jill’s recipe. 


Our chips  

Our potatoes are sourced from WM Fraser Ltd who are a long established potato merchant based in Montrose.  These are chipped on the premises and carefully fried to ensure just the right amount of bite. 


Our meat  

If fish is not your dish we also serve the finest puddings sourced from Munro’s of Dingwall and we often have homemade Orkney Patties on the menu, just as your server for more details.
