The shop is a useful little convenience store and at the back is a 'gift shop' and cafe. The coffee was good and the shop fine but the service/welcome was really off which is a real shame

Not a great selection of meal options for self catering families but good for essentials and snacks and a bit of touristy tat thrown in! Post office and coffee shop here too. Service friendly.

This how a community shop should be. Well stocked and in this case there is a small gift shop annexe with well chosen gifts. Also coffee available and Post Office counter.

This wee shop seemed to be the hub of the community. The owner was a delight, she recommended we climb the hill which gave us 360 views of the island. Great coffee and loved the wild ponies too!

Not only does the shop and Post Office sell anything and everything you need for travelling holiday, but it is also the source for the unique Eriskay jersey, hand-knitted in the island's traditional fishermen's patterns by elderly ladies whose skills have been handed down over...More

Spent a week on the Isle of Eriskay and was amazed at how well stocked this shop was. Everything a family could want and more. Really good prices and amazing service.

This community shop is a real find. It sells just about everything and a pretty little cafe. Browse and buy. I found a recipe for lemon curd ice cream, can't wait to try it out. There should be more of these little shops.
