Finnan Haddies have a lovely subtle flavor ideal for this dish; other smoked haddock (or salmon), however, can be substituted, if necessary.

Comments:

Cullen Skink is a thick Scottish soup made of smoked Finnan Haddie, potatoes and onions. Lacking the traditional ingredient, any other undyed smoked haddock will suffice.
This soup is a local specialty, from the town of Cullen in Moray, on the north-east coast of Scotland. The soup is often served as a starter at formal Scottish dinners.
Finnan Haddie is smoked haddock. Its origin is Findon (or Finnan) near Aberdeen, Scotland but found a new home on American shores in the colonies of New England.
