Overnight guests will surely testify that the Ship is in one of the best locations in town, for it overlooks the almost circular harbour, once an important centre of the herring trade. In the blue-carpeted bar you'll find real ales from Inveralmond, Orkney and elsewhere, as well as a hundred-plus malts. Seafood is served in the bar, the air-conditioned restaurant, and on the open-air terrace, all with harbour views. Cullen skink; black haggis parcels, creamed leeks with honey whisky sauce; and breaded haloumi goujons are typical starters, while main dishes include sea bass with tempura prawns and saffron cream sauce; crab claw and mussel platter; nasi goreng; and pan-seared venison steak with spiced cherries.
