Isle of Harris and Isle of Lewis

Both islands are geographically linked. Plan a little bit more time for your shopping trip as on the isles, nothing is quite at the door step. 

Depending on the weather, it can easily take 90 minutes to “nip” to Stornoway to get some shopping. So it’s best to plan ahead and possibly do the big shop as you arrive by ferry in Stornoway, where you can find the only 2 big supermarkets.

For every day essentials and anything you want to stock up or may have forgotten, you can visit the stores in Tarbert or the Leverburgh Co-Op. Of all the shops in Harris, the Leverburgh Co-Op is the biggest and has the largest selection of every-day essentials.
