I'm pretty positive that when I was in Stornoway a couple of years ago, the supermarkets were open....... can anyone confirm, please? :-)
Of course they are open??? why would they not be.. Closed on Sunday
I did of course mean Sunday! Apologies - that what comes of typing late at night!
tesco and the Co-operative Supermarkets are both open till at least 8pm. You also have Spar at the garage at Bayhead beside Charles Macleod Butchers which is open later as well. You will also find that more hotels and bars are open since the 5 years you were here.
Are you on the morning ferry from Uig to Tarbert?
If so there is a small supermarket - AD Munroe - which we can highly recommend. It has a good bakery and butchery counter. The meat may be better than you can buy in Portree. We highly recommend the fruit pudding. A slice of this with baked beans in the morning will set you up for the day.
It might be worth ringing up to place and order to pick up once the ferry docksas the shop does get busy in the morning.
Thanks EESW,will be on the evening sailing so Munro's will be shut when we get there.
Be rest assured however that we'll be visiting the place when we get there. I remain convinced that the last six or seven times we've ben in Harris that the chips from here have managed to keep me going after our various walks!
That's my story and I'm sicking to it! ;-)
