Big tesco in Inverness
Has all the essentials plus loads more!!
Just general camping food I.e fresh meat and veg were don't get charged a fortune.
Thanks for the replies.
There's a butchers across the road.
Is it decent? Are the mini supermarkets a rip off?
It has shut now.
The Tesco prices are normal tesco prices. Just turn up and see what shops you like (Triubhas I mean).
Sorry i've never shopped there but i live in the area and all the butchers source their meat from the same farms. If it's anything like my local butchers the beef is the best i've ever eaten.
> It has shut now.
Bummer. I suppose that's what happens when we shop at Tesco.

That is such pish. We shop there coz its cheaper. It's cheaper coz it's a multinational that shafts the world for profit.
But it can do this because we go there and buy things, instead of going across the road and getting our hair wet in the rain.
It is a pisser about the butcher - they did really good haggis and sausage
Are there any butchers / green grocers left or is tesco the only option?
Whats the best pub for a relaxed drink / nice food? Something similar to Clachaig in Glencoe would be nice.
What's Glenmore Lodge like for a drink?
Its not bad, usually a couple of cairngorm ales on tap. Can get busy during the school holidays as the campsite is nearby.
Any other good pubs?
Is it the school hols this week or next in scotland?
Ya really starting to pi** me off Tri! If ya trolling..7/10. If ya really asking genuine Q's ....Take ya own supplies! FFS! I'm going for the troll!
Why is it trolling?
The lodge is generally nice for a drink and chilling by the fire or chatting to other outdoor types. Beer selection is good and gammon is huge. Haven't been in the winking owl for a while but used to have a good whisky selection. The Skiing Doo does really good meals and seems to be the popular hangout for eating and drinking. Nice atmosphere and food is plentiful. Daytime, the mountain cafe's coffee and cake is amazing. Curly Fries in the skiing doo are cheaper though!
Fish and chips are great at The Happy Haggis! Curry next door is alright too.
Tesco does for most shopping but there are bigger supermarkets in Inverness if that's what you want. Few, if any little grocers around in Aviemore now but great venison and sausages at Dalraddy / Alvie Estate (3 miles south on the old A9) and 'proper' shops in Grantown-upon-Spey up the road.
The Old Bridge Inn is my favourite pub in Aviemore. Good ales and a decent whisky selection.

Eh? I haven't a clue what you're on about. What did i say that is "such pish"? I think you need to stay off the drink when posting.
And the all-day breakfasts, well worth the wait.
+1 for the Old Bridge. Good beer and decent food. Had some good live music there of an evening as well.
I tend to use the Tesco when up in Aviemore, but that is just because it is convenient. I would agree with CarolineMc re Grantown though. Some good shops there, including the bakery which does a good breakfast in the cafe.
The Costcutter at Dalfaber isn't bad, and is handy for stuff like kindling as well.

Schools in the Highlands are off this week and last week. They go back on Tuesday.
