Eakie’s as it will always be fondly known.

The former owners were Mr & Mrs Mary Eakie. The popular sweet shop in Kinlochleven called “Eakie’s” The sweet shop was a beloved local institution for many years and was well-known for its delicious ice cream, traditional sweets, and friendly service. The local men could also renew their salmon fishing license’s there.

Eakie’s sweet shop was located in the heart of the village and was a popular spot for locals and visitors alike. The shop had a welcoming atmosphere and was always busy, especially during the summer months when tourists flocked to the area.

Although the sweet shop has since closed, it holds a special place in the hearts of many who remember the warm hospitality and delicious treats of Mr. Eakie and his family.
