Full Description

This shop, run by Miss MacCallum, was located in the grounds of Craigvar, at least since 1949 (before that it was located at NH 483 573, next to the Sheiling MHG22633). It shut as the Highland Home Industries shop in the late 1970s/early 1980s and was then briefly a sweet shop, run by Ernie Dan, who wanted to turn it into a chip shop, but was not allowed. The shop only opened during the summer months during its latter years. More recently, it was used by the church to make teas, also in the summer months; it did not have running water or toilet facilities. The building was only demolished fairly recently.
