A grocer’s shop has stood on this spot since 1809 when the Duke of Atholl demanded a village store be built for the new crossroads. Today, behind the elegant façade and preserved signage, the shelves and counters of the Scottish Deli are crowded with an enormous array of artisan products, from oatcakes to smoked meats, haggis, chutneys and an enviable cheese selection. They are carefully selected by owners Sarah and Simon and supplied by producers nearby, wherever the quality is high enough: the smoked salmon and preserves scoop the prize for lowest food miles, made just 30 metres down the road.
Grab a spot at one of the handful of convivial tables scattered through the shop to savour gourmet sandwiches, salads and soups at lunch or the delicious tapas menu in the evening, which you can wash down with a glass of wine. Service is relaxed and friendly, lingering is encouraged, and dogs and children are welcome.
