My son and I visited The Beachcomber and were not disappointed. The portions are huge - one serving of chips between 2 people is adequate. Five pence extra for a packet of ketchup! Friendly owners/cooks. You can sit outside if the weather is nice.

and the cheery staff could not have been more helpful. Fish was excellent, although the chips could have been crispier. We were invited to sit in the covered area even though the manager was locking up. Maria was great, what a happy gain for Gairloch...More
