all regional travel notes by:
Fort William, 2009/09/04
Subject: Bridge of Orchy Hotel
The Bridge of Orchy Hotel of Orchy PA36 4AD, were able to offer a couple of vegan main meals without notice. Not much in the area in the way of eateries so worth remembering. My bean chilli was decent enough. Dogs allowed in bar area.

Subject: St Andrews
The Grill House, Inchape House, Market St did me a vegan version of a veggie chilli. You could also try the Vine leaf restaurant 131 South Street or the Balaka 3 Alexandra Place- but phone to check they can accommodate.
Subject: Pingo Doce Supermarket
The Pingo Doce Supermarket in Praça da República, Porto has a small selection of vegetarian items for sale. Other Pingo Doce may too but this was the only branch I visited.
Santiago De Compostela, 2008/06/25
Subject: Santiago de Compostela
Triangulos Verduras is closed all day Sunday and on Monday evening. Vegan options in this city are extremely limited. There is a pension with a bar/restaurant called Casa Felisa, rua Porto Pena no 5 that has several vegan options: oven roasted vegetables, small galician fried green peppers delicious and spaghetti with tomato sauce though you have to say no cheese and may need the Spanish phrasebook as little English is spoken in Galicia cf to southern Spain. There is also a small bio shop stocking various vegan items including frankfurters. Listing to be added.
Santiago is a beautiful town to wander round but one-two days was enough for me. If you go, unless you\\\'re heavily into religious art and churches you will likely find a day or two visit, or a day trip is enough. Accessible by coach fro, various locations, including Porto: www.alsa.es

The vegetarian restaurant Da Terra in Matosinhos is a 30 min bus ride away so is another option if staying in Porto,
