The Dolphin Fish & Chip Shop is located in the heart of the Banff and Buchan town of Macduff in Aberdeenshire. The town is situated on Banff Bay and faces the town of Banff across the estuary of the River Deveron.

Aberdeen is just over a one hour drive away to the south-east from Macduff.

Macduff was a famous spa town during the nineteenth century and still has a busy working harbour along with the famous Macduff Marine Aquarium which has just been awarded a significant grant towards an upgrade and modernisation.

The town has two excellent golf courses located either side of the town centre with Royal Tarlair just to the east and Royal Duff House just across the bridge in Banff.

The trading location forms part of the North East 250, an amazing road trip taking which explores everything for which Scotland is famous on a unique route taking you through the whisky distilleries of Speyside, the spectacular mountain passes of the Cairngorms National Park, the famous castles of Royal Deeside, the rugged North Sea coastline to the east, and the picturesque seaside villages of the Moray Firth Coast.

Our clients have owned and operated Dolphin Fish and Chips in Macduff since 2016 and since then have consistently invested, upgraded and modernised both the property and all the equipment, fixtures and fittings within. The business is now presented to the highest standard throughout whereupon the new owners will have no major capital expense expected within several years. There has been no expense spared in all aspects of this opportunity which is clear to see immediately on entering the property.

The current owners choose to operate on fairly limited hours with a menu restricted to traditional fried foods along with some wraps and baked potatoes. There is certainly scope for hours to be extended and to potentially look at the addition of what is now common in ‘chippies’, further menu items such as pizzas and kebabs.

Deliveries are not offered and again this would be an opportunity to increase turnover.

Dolphin Fish and Chips offers a business which is profitable and in genuine walk in condition. Having been involved in the sale of the business to the current owners, the investment made over the last few years is clear to see and any new owner will reap the benefits of this.
