Car share schemes are available locally, and the flat terrain is ideal for cycling. Two organic veg box schemes are in operation and “The Phoenix” local shop stocks a wide range of organic produce. The Phoenix café was recently listed as one of Scotland’s best vegetarian restaurants in The Times and La Boheme pizzeria is always popular.
