“Is it be­cause it’s Strath­naver, or is it be­cause we don’t mat­ter?” A spokesman for Tesco said Strath­naver was not in the catch­ment area for reg­u­lar de­liv­er­ies, but the store had helped out on oc­ca­sions.

He added: “We have, by ex­cep­tion, tried to help out the cus­tomer and made some de­liv­er­ies to the cus­tomer in Strath­naver, but this isn’t pos­si­ble on a reg­u­lar or on­go­ing ba­sis.

“Hence we have been work­ing with the cus­tomer to try to help a find a delivery op­tion, in­clud­ing look­ing for ad­dresses which are in our delivery catch­ment.”
