    I am just doing some DIY so dont need alot of bags, need adhesive and grout from local shops as I was planning on getting from online store but postage was alot as only buying a few bags.
    So can anyone recommend any good adhesives that would be available from Toolstation, Screwfix, Topps tiles, b&q or Homebase, can also go into Glasgow and get them if required.

    Will be doing a kitchen splashback with 8-10mm porcelain split face tiles and also 600x300x9mm ceramic on 1/2 the wall all way round a toilet.

    Thanks

    Try CTD in Glasgow - I think they have 2 shops there.

    Hi thanks I checked online and they only show weber adhesives and seem expensive. Are there any decent ones from Screwfix or Toolstation that are worth looking at? I see they do mapei one and also there own make tile adhesive that gets great reviews but not sure if these are from pro tilers.

    Sounds like you want to use one of the sheds for your gear?

    If so then I’d go for the Slow Set Flexible own brand from Topps Tiles. Orange bag. It’s made by Palace. I used some recently when I got stuck......and they’ve changed the formula and it’s actually decent now.

    Not necessarily I was going to go for one that protiler sell but postage was high due to weight. So just asking if there were any decent ones that they sell as it would be easy to go collect and their reviews seem good.
    If they are poor I won't bother that's why I have asked you good people you will have more knowledge and experience. I can only go by the reviews.

    Will look at the Topps tiles ones anyway, thank you.

    A company called Glasgow Tile Centre are stockists of Tilemaster Adhesives, might be worth trying them.

    CTD sell a few different makes - but they sell to the trade and public and will have two price points . I hope you understand that, just like Topps will.

    As for Screwfix and Toolstation, the adhesive they sell is more expensive than it will be at CTD.

    You can always haggle.
