“The Wee Kelpie is the place to get high quality, restaurant standard fish and chips (Gluten Free options available too), cooked with care and exceeding all your expectations. Well worth a visit – we look forward to seeing you soon!”

Kerr & Nicola Raeburn


The Wee Kelpie is a family run, multi-award-winning, Fish & Chip shop (including Gluten Free options!) in the picturesque holiday town of Helensburgh, nestled on the banks of the River Clyde, near Loch Lomond.

Owners Nicola and Kerr Raeburn have over 25 years’ experience in the food business and have established themselves as a multi award winning business with an incredible reputation for quality food and customer service.

The Wee Kelpie was established in 2011 in an old store room adjacent to their restaurant, when unfortunately the restaurant flooded. A week later The Wee Kelpie was open and although at that time the shop was very basic, the takeaway took off overnight and word spread quickly. The Wee Kelpie is now the place to go for freshly cooked fish suppers cooked to perfection.

The awards quickly started rolling in. In 2014 they won not only the Best Takeaway in Scotland at the Scottish Entertainment Awards but also went on to win the Best Chippy Chips in Scotland and tenth in the United Kingdom in 2014 during Chip Week, which is a national contest.

They have since gone on to win Best Takeaway in Scotland 2019 and the Good Food Award for best fish and Chips 2019 and 2020, also winning The Italian Food Awards Best Fish and Chip shop in the South West 2018.
