I'm not sure if "down near the harbour, it was close to a river" is possible in Stonehaven?
I think you are probably talking about "The Carron" self proclaimed home of the deep fried Mars bar. It's right next to the "Carron Water" which flows up the side. Also, it's at the "Harbour end" of the town but the actual harbour is still about ten minutes walk away.
Incidentally, the other well known chippie "The Bay" is also not very far away from the other river "Cowie Water" Just a couple of hundred yards. However, there is no harbour but the Beach Promenade is also lovely.
Incidentally, the fish and chip on the square is also very good although it isn't as well known as the other two. It's still much better than in most other towns though.
