Those of us who are elderly can remember Stornoway with the odd sheep wandering the streets, with little old ladies allowed to jump the queues in the shops and with the compulsory drunk flat out on the pavement. The slippery slope to sophistication began in the 80s with the arrival of the first aubergine in town...
Well I can tell you that, in the past week alone, my lunchtime sanwiches have included Stilton patee and salad, salami with italian salad and...wait for it...Tallegio, grape and salad. The latter was perfection. And all at the very excellent Good Food Boutique. Mind you, get there early as the sandwiches are all gone long before lunch. This forces you onto the local baked cupcakes;some with the little tiny coloured thingies on (hundreds and thousands?) and some with the little silver balls (silver balls?). All great.
Yet this is mainly a food shop. First up is a range of cheeses every bit as good as you can find in Morningside and a very interesting selection of biscuits to go with them. There is fine selection of teas including Valarian for those who have trouble sleeping. Loads of olives for olive addicts, all you need for a sauce to go with the fresh fish from the shop by the harbour. Interesting patees such as the Stilton already mentioned and Crashing Wild Boar.
