The former Ardvasar Stores is a detached stone built building situated within the heart of the village of Ardvasar.  The successful village stores closed in May 2017 after offering a valuable service to the village and the surrounding community of Sleat for many years.

The premises offer the potential for a variety of uses including a dwelling, cafe or gallery, subject to any necessary planning consent.


Ardvasar is a pretty village on the Sleat peninsular which is also known as the Garden of Skye.  The front of the shop overlooks Ardvasar Bay and across the Sound of Sleat towards Knoydart.  The vantage point where they stand is perhaps one of the most photographed spots on the peninsula.  The shop is also within walking distance of the ferry terminal at Armadale, where the Mallaig ferry arrives and departs from.  Mallaig is served by the national rail network.  Within the village there is also a small hotel.

In Armadale there is a community petrol station with artisan shop and sub post office, a vehicle repair garage, a couple of galleries and a clothing shop.  Primary schooling is a short drive away in Kilbeg with secondary education provided at Portree or Plockton High Schools.  There is also a doctors’ surgery in Kilbeg.

Wider facilities are available in Broadford some 17 miles away.
