"Borva Stores" - any ideas?

We've received this enquiry. If anyone can help with Pete's search, please let us know.

I am doing some research for my family genealogy and was wondering if
there is any signifigance to the title such as in an address from the mid

"Borva stores, Portree"

that you might be familiar with?

Kind regards,

Pete Hindy
