Like most shops in Shetland, Skibhoul stores sells everything from aspirin to candles, groceries to gifts. But the cafe is the high light : you pay for your coffee at the shop till, and then go round the corner and make it yourself. You can also buy. Sausage rolls, pies, etc and heat them up in the microwave for a small charge (about5p).
They have loads of reading material, including a wide selection of books to buy borrow or swap. Quite unique. And it has a good view.

Great shop, well stocked, lovely service. Fresh bread and oatcakes were my particular favourites - we had a yummy picnic feast based on our provisions from this shop!

We were surprised to find such a great variety of goods here, especially the products of the Skibhoul Bakery. We bought a selection of oat cakes to take home to Germany and the friendly lady at the cashier even told us that postal orders from Europe were no problem.

A lovely little shop with absolutely everything you could need for a holiday in Unst. They also make wonderful pizzas on a Friday. Their self service cafe offers a place for a busy traveller to sit down and eat without having to go through the whole dining-in experience. Perfect for travellers with children! Staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Excellent shop, we got everything we wanted at a snip of the prices paid on the mainland! The self service cafe was a novelty and the kids enjoyed it.
