Armadale, Sleat, Isle of Skye IV45 8RS
With the support of the Big Lottery and Highlands & Islands Enterprise, Sleat Community Trust took over ownership of the Skye Ferry Filling Station on the 3rd December 2007. Following a community vote in May 2017, the shop was renamed 'Armadale Stores'.
After what was supposed to be a brief relocation to a temporary location the shop re-opened in the old location, but in a fantastic new building, in March 2021.
Armadale Stores is managed by the volunteer directors of Sleat Community Trading Co Ltd.
SHOP: Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.30pm, and Saturday 9.00am to 3.30pm.
POST OFFICE: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 9.00am to 3.30pm (closing for lunch 1.30pm-2pm), and Wednesday and Saturday 9.00am to 3.30pm.
The shop is stocked with a variety of products including local venison, meat, maps, books, sweets, hot & cold drinks, snacks, off sales and a large range of general groceries. We sell a large number of products, like rice, beans, flours, pasta, lentils, etc. from our re-fill section. Petrol and diesel are also available.
The Post Office
Since 2008 the Post Office has offered the full range of services that Royal Mail offer, as well as Post Office approved stationery.
The garage has been leased to MacGillivray Motors. If the number of cars regularly parked at the garage is any indication, business is brisk and fully appreciated by the locals! Contact Alasdair MacGillivray on 01471 844361
