“A great chippie with one of the best views in Scotland!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

For those on a budget wanting a tasty meal in Fort Augustus the Canal Chip side is a great option. With such a high turnover of customers all the food is freshly made and doesn't sit drying out under glass heaters. The best thing about this chippie is its location right on the Canal side, allowing you to watch yachts of every shape and size and value.

“Disappointingly average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Arrived late at our 'digs' in Fort Augustus and we were directed to this chippy-cum-restuarant. It was probably quite close to closing time so that perhaps accounts for the less than welcoming staff. The portion size for our takeaway was generous but the chips were obviously frozen and, although freshly cooked, lots of them were under-cooked. It was handy as nowhere else was open for a takeaway and although it wasn't terrible, I doubt we would return.

“Good food! Good price!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Certainly liked the cost of the food! Loved the owner who was managing the shop. There is something interesting about this guy, who, by the way, looked like one of my old school teachers!! There is a small figurine of him kept by the window. Unfortunately the big menu board covers that from outside!

“Chippy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Good fresh-cooked fish slightly spoilt by the use of frozen chips. Why can't businesses use fresh potatoes? It doesn't take much and the result is so much better.
