Temporary shop opening soon

It was revealed at East Kintyre Community Council (EKCC) that Carradale’s shop expects to stock only 14 daily papers.

EKCC members at a meeting, last Thursday, decided to order the papers through McKellars in Campbeltown’s Main Street after a hiatus in supply.

The shop will offer basic food and groceries and trade from a Juniper Green portable building in the village hall car park.

More volunteers are needed and a sign has been ordered. It is hoped to open, as one member said ‘possibly ominously’ on Brexit day, March 29.

Hotel sign

A ‘luxury boutique guest house,’ Carradales, which opened last year, is to be asked to move its sign onto the grass verge.

EKCC members said Ian Brodie would contact the owners after the sign appeared to have moved out.

Kintyre Way

Questions were raised about the state of the Kintyre Way on its 25-mile journey through the EKCC area, from Deuchruan to Lussa.

Councillor Anne Horn said she understood there is a Kintyre Way maintenance plan and she would check the details.

Members agreed to invite a Kintyre Way administrator to the next EKCC meeting on Thursday March 7 at 7pm.
