THE SCALLOP SHACK
We have been selling shellfish for over thirty years now, ever since David gave up his job in Manchester to seek his fortune as a scallop diver.
The Scallop Shack is open all year round 24/7 for the freshest hand dived scallops you can buy. The fridge is stocked daily with scallops to take away to cook yourself. We also sell Isle of Lewis oysters – subject to availability.
The door is always left open, and if there is no-one around just check to see what is available in the fridge and use the honesty box provided. Of course as our honoured guests you are entitled to a complimentary pack!
The Seafood Cafe was a lot of fun the two summers we ran it, but it took a lot of energy, and there are only so many things that can be done in a day! We decided to concentrate on The Scallop Shack, selling fresh scallops to be taken away to cook – quick and easy and totally delicious! Three minutes in the frying pan and a meal to rival the best scallop dish anywhere in the world! A bold claim we know – but just try them and you`ll see what we mean!
