If you need some cash, there’s an ATM just outside the Spar in Spean Bridge. Otherwise, in Fort William, there are at least 2 banks in the high street with cash machines outside, and an ATM by the entrance to Morrison’s supermarket.
Shops in Spean Bridge
- Spar – Just the other side of the bridge and Spean Bridge mill there is a spar with a Post Office, which stocks most things. They are very friendly, if sometimes over-run by visitors to the Woollen Mill. It is a small shop, and essential for older members of the community, so please be sensitive to social distancing requests and expectations.
- The Bridge Café - our lovely local café, which does an excellent variety of breakfasts.
- Highland Soap Company - another local success story, we use their Scottish Bog Myrtle Hand & Body Lotion to keep the midges at bay.
- The Woollen Mill - a regular stop for tourist coaches, they have tea and cakes.
- Glen Spean Brewery - they have recently opened a shop at the brewery, and their beer is excellent. They also offer a good selection of wines, if you prefer.
- Great Glen Charcuterie - another award-winning local producer (and our lovely neighbours across the road), their venison-based charcuterie can be bought from Iain Stewart Fishmonger in Fort William.
Food Shops in Fort William
- Morrison - you’ll see a Morrison’s supermarket by the lochside roundabout (by the site of the original garrison). It has pretty much everything – including cheap fuel, café and ATM – just avoid it on a Sunday afternoon when it tends to be really busy.

- Marks & Spencers Food Hall - on the North Road out of Fort William, along with Home Bargains
- Aldi - slightly closer to town than M&S.
