Local produce is a great way to have a keepsake of your Arran-time, something you can enjoy until your next visit. This might be a piece of hand forged silver jewellery, beautiful pottery or a scenic painting from one of our talented creative artists. Foodwise, you can buy almost everything made on the island – whether that be whisky, bread, cheese, chocolate, coffee, biscuits, oatcakes, preserves, meat, vegetables, milk, botanicals, beer or ice cream! So you never need to bring food or drink with you to Arran.
Local grocery shops island-wide offer a fantastic range of supplies, from local milk and breads to cleaning and household items, so no need to bring any supplies with you. But then a shop is not just a shop on Arran. Be prepared to get your groceries in the village post office; or your hardware at the local paper shop or post a letter at the newsagents – be sure and have a chat to the staff who can offer advice, suggestions and a bit of craic!
