The Ship Inn Stonehaven

A picture-perfect seaside view. Cosy bedrooms overlooking the harbour. Locally-sourced food cooked to perfection.

Built in 1771, The Ship Inn Stonehaven is more than just a historic property: we’re a small, friendly hotel where the warmest of Scottish welcomes awaits.

Our hotel, which occupies a prime spot on the edge of the harbour, has 11 comfortable en-suite bedrooms. Well-appointed with fast, free WiFi, each room is individually styled and most have harbour views.

Our restaurant, The Captain’s Table, serves up a fantastic, varied menu of home-cooked food, with seafood our speciality. Next door, our lounge bar – complete with an outdoor sun terrace – has an extensive collection of single malt whiskies, Scottish craft gins, draught beer and real ales. It’s the perfect place to meet the locals or relax and watch seaside life go by.
