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'.
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 1.30pm.
POST OFFICE: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9.00am to 4.00pm. Wednesday and Saturday 9.00am to 1.30pm.
The shop is stocked with local produce including venison, meat, maps, books, sweets, snacks, off sales and a large range of general groceries.
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.
Sleat Community Trading successfully arranged an increase of opening hours paid for by the Post Office from 6 up to 15 per week. However, the Post Office also opens for additional hours to increase ease of community access.
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
