Classic Chippy, Glasgow and Edinburgh

I'd like to get a quick bite of fish and chips at a typical chippy in both Glasgow and Edinburgh. Any recommendations relatively near downtown? I'm having trouble picking between the options that keep popping up. My ideal spot would feature fresh fish and fresh-cut potatoes, is there such a place?

  1. In Glasgow. McPhees and the Philadelphia yes, the Chippy Doon The Lane I thought was terrible and I haven't personally experienced Ramsdens.

    1. Definitely Tailend in Edinburgh

      1. Tailend is the only restaurant that I would particularly recomend in Edinburgh. Rapido has aweful chips sometimes and the others are just bog standard chippys. Nothing to get excited about but nothing wrong either.
