Shopping & Supermarkets

As a small market town, Seahouses has a great range of independent gift shops and food shops as well as a large Co-op.

Independent shops are so important to the character of a village like Seahouses providing a unique shopping experience different from the corporate main streets of so many other towns where all the usual chains are represented.

Trotters Family Bakers
Food shops include Trotters Family Bakers, Scott’s Butchers, Seahouses Fruit & Veg shop and the Co-op supermarket on Main Street . There is a also a Fish Shop near the harbour called Swallowfish of Seahouses, They offer superb quality fresh & smoked fish and a wide range of seafood.  Many locals prefer Swallowfish kippers to their better known cousins down the coast at Craster – why not try them both and make your own mind up?


There are double yellow lines on Seahouses Main Street as it is quite narrow and large vehicles need to pass.  There is a large car park just behind the shops (to the North) which includes a free 1 hour short stay area situated closest to the shops.  You still need a parking ticket, just press the green button for your free 1 hour ticket.  There is also parking by the harbour.
