About the Fish Bar
Mara, which means ‘the sea’ in Scots Gaelic, takes pride in using only the freshest, locally sourced seafood from sustainable sources. As avid supporters of the #offthetable campaign, they are committed to raising awareness of the impact of salmon farming and promoting sustainable fishing practices throughout Scotland.
At Mara, you can indulge in a range of seafood delights, including classic fish and chips, hearty seafood chowder, and succulent prawn and lobster rolls. But that’s not all – they also offer a range of deli items like Blackwater Bakehouse bread and locally sourced milk.
With limited seating available, it’s recommended to arrive early if you want to snag a spot at one of the eight bar stools inside or the two large benches on the front patio. But don’t worry if you can’t find a seat – all food is served in takeaway containers, allowing you to enjoy your meal wherever you please.
Seasonal Opening Times
One thing to keep in mind is that Mara is a seasonal business, open from March 24th to October 29th in 2023. They don’t take reservations, so it’s best to plan accordingly if you’re visiting during peak hours.
