SHOPS AND CAFES
Achmelvich is approximately 3½ miles from Lochinver. Lochinver is a small fishing village. Shops include a Spar, butchers, newsagents, hardware and gift shops. There are several cafes and restaurants but opening times are varied and it is advisable to check times and whether you need to book before arranging to go out to eat.
Outside the summer season some shops and eateries reduce their opening hours and some close for the winter.
The nearest supermarket is a Tesco in Ullapool.
SHORE FISH AND CHIPS
What better dinner option is there than fish and chips by the beach? The Shore fish and chip shop is run by Bev, who has been frying fish here for 10years now!
She prepares meals freshly, using a wide range of locally sourced items such as haggis and black pudding from S. Greenlees and Son Butchers in Lochinver.
The fish used comes fresh from Ullapool. Bev is also keen to protect our beautiful beaches, with this in mind she uses compostable packaging, where possible.
In addition she has a wide range of meal options to suit dietary needs such as Gluten Free batter.
