A.D. Munro - Butcher & Grocer

A.D. Munro - Butcher & Grocer
Tarbert, Scotland
June 25, 2012

If you ever find yourself in Tarbert, there are only two small shops to buy provisions.  A small newsagent and a butcher/grocer; A.D. Munro.  

The first day we arrived on the Hebrides, I made several trips to the newsagent to pick up essentials like toilet paper and hand soap.  The next day, we checked out the local grocer to see what was in stock.  Turns out, a bit of everything!

As you can see from this shot from the meat counter, plenty of selection.  No shortage of lamb, that's for sure.  It's hard to not trip over a sheep while in the Hebrides.  They also had plenty of pork, chicken and beef.  It was a rare treat to have an actual butcher working in the shop, he was very helpful when we were trying to decide what cut of lamb to buy.  Here's a shot of someone picking up some meat at the counter.

Munro's also had a small selection of veggies, snacks, staples, booze, cell phone minutes and everything else you'd expect at a corner shop.  Good thing, too...the nearest grocery store is in Stornaway, a solid hour's drive North!.
