Saved from closure by the community in 2009, there has been a shop in Hillswick since at least 1698. A lifeline in this isolated part of the world, it supplies a wide range of fresh groceries, including local dairy, fish, fruit and veg, baking and meat. These and other supplies can be pre-ordered to ensure availability. It also has an off-licence, a part-time Post Office, a free ATM and a range of intensely practical non-food items: petrol and diesel, wellies, chicken feed and coal.
