Shops


Although this is a remote location there is a good selection of food available in the local area but expect to pay more than your local supermarket.


Laide Post Office  have a  small carefully chosen selection of wine, beer and spirits at very reasonable prices. Try the An Teallach beer brewed at Dundonell. They also have a good basic supply of groceries.  We highly recommend the smoked fish from the Isle of Ewe Smoke house in nearby Mellon Charles. Anything they don’t have they will get for you. You will find them most friendly and helpful. This is also the place to get petrol, fishing permits and of  course your daily newspaper.


Aultbae Stores is a well stocked grocers which offers a reasonable selection of wines and beers.


Eating Out


The Aultbae Hotel  is getting good reviews. The location is fantastic and we have had a pleasant evening meal here with good local sea food. It is worth booking ahead and asking for a window table.


The Perfume Studio has a commanding view over Loch Ewe. It is a great venue for coffee or a light lunch and also sells gifts and its' own handmade soap and perfumes. The soap in the croft is  made in the perfume studio.


The Drumchork Hotel in Aultbae offers basic pub food. They have the smallest distillery in the UK.


If you go a bit further afield we love the Badachro Inn just south of Gairloch (about 40 min from the croft). The location is fantastic overlooking a delightful anchorage. Good beer and good food.



The Mountain Coffee Company & Bookstore in Gairloch has great home baking and is a good place for coffee with  an excellent selection of books. We recommend the monster scones!
