Carsphairn's shop has been community owned since 1995. The building is looked after by a committee but the shop is run by tenants who operate their own business.
Lindsay and Paul have been tenants for several years now and their business had gone from strength to strength. The premises was devastated in the village wide flooding in 2015 but they have fought back, winning the prestigious Scottish Food Awards Community Tearoom of the Year 2017!
Their expanded tearoom and tea garden draws customers from all over and new this year are monthly bistro nights.
