There are big supermarkets in Stornoway (Coop and Tesco, 1-hour drive from Beachside), and good, well-stocked, local stores in Tarbert and Leverburgh (both 15-minutes away), where all the food basics are readily available.

Harris Tweed Shop The Harris Tweed Shop in Tarbert is a MUST-VISIT place! Absolutely packed with wonderful Harris Tweed products. And if you’re into making things yourself you can buy Harris Tweed off the roll – perfect for curtains, cushions and all sorts of craft purposes. (
