Not just a shop but a collection of shops, restaurant and fuel filling station. Before you hit the West Highland Way this is a must stop place - whether for a fuel stop or a meal stop or some essential last minute shopping. The Green Welly Shop website states it is a must stop place for the Virtual Tourist - so you can shop from your home wherever you may live. Open 7 days April - October 8.30 - 17.30
November - March 8.30 - 17.00
What to buy: They have a snack shop with all sandwiches freshly prepared in their restaurant, we did buy these and some fruit juice to have for our lunch later in the day. While we were browsing the outdoor clothing section we saw some cute wellies for tiny kids - I couldn't resist buying a pair for a special someone.
What to pay: The sandwiches were reasonably priced although the wellies were on the expensive side but maybe not - its such a long time since I have bought a pair of kids' wellies. Compared to the Outdoor Wear Shops in Aberdeen the prices here seemed a little hiked up.
We popped into Kilmartin Store and Post Office because we had forgotten to bring some water with us to quench both our thirst and the dogs. I was most impressed with their hi tech dog hook - a safe lockable dog parking place and very thoughtful idea. There is only one shop in the Village and the sign inside said "Everything from a needle to a haystack" ha ha they were clean out of haystacks but they did sell just about everything else!
What to buy: We did buy some water and a few on the go snacks to keep us going.
What to pay: Prices are a fair few pence higher here in little villages but you have to consider the transport costs
