What's on offer?

The nearest large supermarket, Tesco, is in Dingwall on the East Coast, around 1hr 30 mins away – they do home deliveries.However, Gairloch is well provided with a surprisingly large range of shops given its population, and we urge all our guests to support the Gairloch economy by shopping locally.
