Sad to hear Muasdale Stores on the west coast of Kintyre is set to close at the end of March unless the shop can be sold before then. Ian and Margaret Sinclair have decided to call time on the shop they have ran for over 40 years.

If anyone is interested the shop is for sale

PRICE REDUCTION!!!! Muasdale Stores previously advertised at Offers Over £65,000 now reduced to Offers Over £49,500!!!
This thriving local business has a proven track record and is just waiting for someone to take it into its next chapter. Call our Lochgilphead office for more details and to arrange a suitable time to view this wee gold mine - 01546 602903

I'm very sad to hear it. Have only dropped in occasionally when passing over the years but they have always been most courteous and helpful. Alas this is the way things are going.

We`ve only shopped there a few times, obviously, when on holiday at Muasdale, but it`s a great little shop, plenty of choice in goods, and friendly service from really nice people. If the shop does carry on, let`s hope the next owners are as good.

It will be sad if they can't get a buyer for the stores. Shopped there many times. But then again, I remember drinking at the Muasdale Inn back in the day.

That was before we started going, we were told where the Muasdale Inn used to be though.

It is indeed sad news to see this little gem of a shop close. Superbly run shop which had an excellent selection of goods. Used the shop since I was a wee kid on holiday in Mausdale and over the years. Really sad to see it close but happy retirement to Iain and Margaret - well deserved!

Only time I was ever in the shop ,or the inn, was when I was doing the deliveries on the Dunsade lorry with Charlie Morrison and Ian Forshaw way back in the 60's, probably 67.

The above link will take you to a previous post from 10 years ago that shows a couple of photographs taken inside the inn.
