The Knoydart Foundation Shop
The Knoydart Foundation Shop is one of the activities that allows the community-run Knoydart Foundation to earn a secondary income to reinvest in the people and the place.
They are a small community-owned enterprise still in its early years and have yet to reach the same enviable position as their sister enterprise, the Knoydart Bunkhouse, which has 'gifted back' over £30k surplus income to the Foundation in the last few years.
The Shop has existed in its current location since 2012. Before that, starting right back at the start of the buyout in 1999, they made use of the walls and ceiling of the Foundation display room next door to where they are now, displaying a very limited array of stock!
Until Spring 2015, the Shop had no dedicated staff and was solely serviced by Knoydart Foundation office and Ranger staff members. The Shop now employs Kim as a part-time dedicated shop assistant who can spend more time helping customers and visitors, whether it’s about buying gifts and souvenirs, or information on local walks and facilities.
They are currently very excited about their plan to sell a modest range of selected alcohol (please note, these will not be available by mail order) including Scottish craft bottled beers, gins & whiskies, and Fair Trade wines.
Keep up with their latest news on Facebook and Twitter and give them a shout if there is anything you’d like to know!
