The Seafood Shack

Discover Freshness at the Seafood Shack in Ullapool

Nestled in the heart of Ullapool, the Seafood Shack has carved a niche for itself as a premier destination for seafood lovers. Since opening in May 2016, the Shack has become renowned for serving fresh, local seafood cooked to order. Operating from a catering trailer, it offers a simple, quick, and delicious seafood experience that has captured the hearts of both locals and visitors alike.

Fresh and Local – The Seafood Philosophy

At the Seafood Shack, they are utilizing the bountiful local seafood caught by Ullapool’s inshore fishing boats. Recognizing a gap in the market where much of this prime seafood was not being fully utilized locally, they set out to change the narrative. The aim was not just to open another eatery but to create a space where they could share their passion for seafood with the community and visitors, all while enjoying the stunning views across Loch Broom.

A Menu That Changes with the Catch

Their daily menu is a testament to the commitment to freshness. Each morning, curating their offerings based on the catch dropped off by local fishermen. This practice ensures that the customers get to enjoy a variety of seafood that is as fresh as it can get, with the menu keeping both the customers and them on their toes. From succulent scallops to the finest haddock, the seafood is never frozen, guaranteeing the highest quality.

Awards and Recognitions

The Seafood Shack’s unique approach and dedication have not gone unnoticed. They’ve been honoured with numerous awards and features, from being named the “Best Street Food or Takeaway” by BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Award in 2017, to winning the “Best Eating Experience” at the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards in 2018. The accolades and features in prestigious publications such as Vogue Magazine, BBC Good Food Magazine, and The Lonely Planet highlight their commitment to excellence.
