The award-winning Ship Inn is wonderfully placed, overlooking the picturesque harbour at Stonehaven. It specialises in serving locally-caught fish in the restaurant and lounge bar. There you can sample local ales and also 100 malt whiskies. I was more concerned about food and my lightly-cooked tuna with sesame seeds was packed with flavour. There was also a bite in the salsa which was packed with celery, black olives, rocket and red chillies. The dish came with new potatoes and was stunning in its simplicity and also stunning in taste.
