Shop Arran

Island shopping

We offer a welcoming and inspiring retail experience on Arran. Treat yourself and take something home with you that reflects your fabulous stay on Arran. You won’t find any chain stores – instead you’ll find yourself browsing shops with stunning handcrafted products, nautical treasures, practical walking shorts, comfy designer knits, soft sheepskin rugs, tasty food or amazing aromatics. Go on, you deserve it – and you won’t be stuck for a gift to take home for the neighbours either!

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!
