North Hop - Support Local - Scotland

Monday 27th April 2020

As we go into week 6 of lockdown in Scotland from Covid-19 I figured it was time to give a massive shout out to all the amazing businesses across Scotland that have persevered, overcome hurdles, adapted business models and honestly been complete stars to remain open and provide services during this tough time!

With no certainty of when lockdown will be lifted at the moment it is likely that further businesses will re-open with new protocols in place and I will try to keep this list updated as and when that happens. And as I have put together this list purely from businesses posts on social, etc I cannot guarantee that the information is fully up to date, and I also might have missed a few businesses out, so please feel free to get in touch if you can think of any to add...

Up in Gairloch we are slightly restricted as to what businesses will deliver, etc but have already enjoy a fab takeaway from The Barn Cafe at Sands, had awesome brownies delivered from Artisana, received a medium hamper of delicious charcuterie from East Coast Cured, stocked up with fresh and local goodies at West Coast Deli, used The Shop at the Pier to get my Harry Got fix, enjoyed some yummy fudge and tablet from Pure Decadence by Loch Aurora, and received an amazing fresh seafood delivery from The Redshank Catering Co!

So take a look below and see what local businesses you might be able to support during these tough times and beyond...
