Scotland has some of the best seafood anywhere in Europe and with all that wonderful fish around what can be better than eating it fresh?

We've taken the hassle out of visiting a fishmonger or your local supermarket and looked at the best ways to get fresh fish delivered straight to your door.

Coast & Glen FISHBOX

You know when a service offers to get fish from "the ocean to plate in less than 24 hours" that it must be good. Thankfully Fishbox actually delivers (pardon the pun) on their promise. The FISHBOXES are hand-picked daily by the Coast & Glen team and mostly feature only seasonal, 'straight from the boat' seafood.

Though you won't know what you'll get in each box, Coast & Glen provide a handy check list where you can tick off things you love, like or dislike so you only get things you'll enjoy.

Best of all delivery is free and they deliver anywhere in Scotland, they also label all of their products to say where they have been caught so you'll always know the provenance of what you are eating.

Ferry Fish

It's always nice when you get let in on a secret and the residents of Galloway have a big one in Ferry Fish; they've been enjoying the finest quality fresh, smoked and shelled fish for two decades and now you can enjoy it too.

Offering wonderful seafood caught off the coast near Solway, most of their fish is hand-boned rather than machine filleted for a higher quality product.

They have an amazing range so you can buy anything from whiting fillets to hot smoked salmon and caviar.
