"The Best Wee Shop In The Hebrides"

Well, we certainly like to think so. No, we're not the biggest but we're not the smallest either and we pride ourselves on our surprisingly large range and excellent customer service.

We're also proud of our Cottage Delivery Service, which takes the stress out of coming on holiday by doing your shopping for you. What's more your shopping will be in your cottage before you are, so no need to unpack bag after bag. Only on Colonsay.... To find out more about this service visit the Orders page.

The sliders below give a taste of the produce we stock. From over 60 fine wines, to local Balnahard meat and from fresh seafood to our freshly baked bread and pastries, we really try to have something for everyone. Coupled with our friendly staff and highly rated customer service we hope you'll come to see why we think we're "The Best Wee Shop In The Hebrides".
