Argyll & Outer Hebrides: Shop Times, Cultural Experiences & Historical Places

Jump to last reply

My friend and I are planning a trip to Scotland for May 2014. So far we are narrowing down to the Argyll region (only because I must see the the hill fort of Dunadd and the Isle of Iona) and the Hebrides. We both love staying in the countryside and would love the chance to get to know the locals and their culture. Neither of us are really into beaches as we have plenty of white sandy beaches at home. I love historical sites (prehistory to 1800s) and my friend loves dramatic landscapes. My question is, do those two regions sound like good places for us to go? Is there anything you can recommend seeing or avoiding? Are there areas within the region that get very few tourists (we tend to find people more excited to talk to us when they aren't used to seeing tourists)?

My next question is shop times. We recently took a trip to France with the plan of buying a propane stove and all our own groceries for some car camping (just for lunches and dinners if we were out late). We found that we hadn't though enough into it and that in the region of France we were in, buying ice (for our cooler) was almost unheard of, and groceries stores were closed Sundays and Mondays and only open 10:00-18:00 with a lunch from 12:00-14:00. This time I would like to be prepared. Is it hard to find ice in the grocery stores for our cooler? When are grocery stores open?
