Scottish anchorages


For serious stocking up (including alcoholic beverages) you need to go to Oban, Fort William, Bowmore, Mallaig or Tobermory with their reasonably wide range of shops and supermarkets. But don't forget the village shops which need your business. More specialist shops worth a look are at:


Ardalanish, South Mull: Ardalanish weavers (also walk from Bunessan, West Mull)


Tobermory: Chocolate factory, Browns for a brilliant window display and loads of ironmongery stuff along with the whisky, and the Mull Bakery and Deli for your morning croissant.


There are a few bookshops left standing, and rather good ones too. It is well worth browsing around in:


Bowmore, Islay: Celtic House

Fort William: Highland Bookshop,new ijn 2017

Scalasaig, Colonsay: House of Lochar

Tobermory: Tackle and Books — my favourite


And to ponder on literary inspiration visit Barnhill on Jura to remember George Orwell and 1984.


There are a several galleries and craft shops around the place:


Ardminish Bay, Gigha: Craft Workshop and Gallery

Calgary Bay, West Mull: Calgary farmhouse

Crinan, Firth of Lorne: gallery in Crinan hotel

Eigg: craft shop on the pier

Fiunary Rocks, Sound of Mull: Morvern Gallery

Fort William, Upper Loch Linnhe: Lime Tree Studio

Muck, south anchorage: craft shop

Port an Dunain, Loch Leven: F.W.Holroyd Art Gallery, Starfish Celtic Harps 

Strontian, Loch Sunart:  Woodland pottery

Tobermory, Sound of Mull: An Tobar and Tobermory pottery


These are of course all rather tempting, so avoid taking your credit card when visiting them (I must confess to occasional and not inexpensive lapses).
