Toggle location map

The Ship Inn (est 1771) is spectacularly situated on the edge of Stonehaven’s historic and picturesque harbour.

Excellent home-cooked meals are served in the Captain’s Table Restaurant – offering splendid harbour views through the floor to ceiling windows – the cosy bar and, weather permitting, the outside terrace overlooking the harbour. Fresh seafood is a speciality, but meat and vegetarian dishes are also offered – all using the finest and freshest locally sourced ingredients – and scrumptious home-made desserts.

A good selection of draught and bottled beers (including Real Ales) and ciders are available, as well as a wide range of spirits and liqueurs including over 100 Single Malt Whiskies and a good selection of Craft Gins. Wine List and by the glass. Good range of soft drinks. Freshly ground Coffee and a selection of Teas are also offered.

Dogs are welcome in the bar.

The Ship Inn has 11 modern and well-appointed ensuite bedrooms. 7 of the rooms offer splendid harbour views. There are 4 doubles, 2 Family Rooms and a Single with Harbour View and 2 Twins and 2 Doubles without Views. All the double beds are UK Kingsize.

All rooms have tea/coffee, flat-screen Televisions with Freeview, Radio/Alarm Clocks, Desk/dressing Tables and Hairdryers. Full Scottish Breakfast is served in The Captain’s Table Restaurant and included in the tariff.

The Inn is conveniently situated close to Aberdeen, Royal Deeside and many local attractions such as Dunnottar Castle and Stonehaven’s famous and unique Art Deco Open-air Swimming Pool.
