Karitek Shop is open

We look forward to welcoming you to our shop in Ardrishaig, opposite the Egg Shed. We have new kit and, like lots of shops, new ways of working. We would ask visitors to wear a face mask, use the hand sanitizer provided, maintain social distancing and not to handle stock. We will be happy to help as we all work together in these new ways. Our winter opening hours are 11am to 2pm on Mondays and Fridays and 11am to 3pm on Saturdays. We are happy to open outwith these times, please email to arrange.
