SHOP till you drop

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

Around the is­land there are small shops, just when you least ex­pect them one of which is the Rock Pool in Cor­rie – a de­light­ful lit­tle shop and cafe which should not be missed. Just look for the wooden seal on the rock out­side. To the south Lam­lash is well served with gift shops, in­clud­ing the Cur­tain House, Made in Ar­ran and the Ar­ran Fine Foods out­let tucked away across a bridge at the far end of the vil­lage. Since 1967 the Old Byre Show­room at Machrie, on the west coast, has been de­light­ing vis­i­tors and is­landers alike; and ren­o­va­tion and ex­ten­sion has now earned it four-star visi­tor cen­tre sta­tus. Shop for a wide range of lead­ing UK qual­ity knitwear and coun­try brands; paint your own pot at Si­mon Thor­born’s pot­tery shop and let the young ones burn off en­ergy in the ex­ten­sive out­door play area.
