The Old Post Office is situated in the beautiful isolated village of Marvig in South Lochs on the Isle of Lewis. It was the original post office in the village but has since been turned into a dwelling house.
The property maintains the same character as it always had.
It is a small comfortable cottage set in a quarter acre of garden which is suitable for pets and children.
The back of the house provides a view of the sea loch which comes into the tiny harbour of Marvig whilst the east side of the garden looks onto the low crags of South Lochs which are the hunting ground for a pair of golden eagles.
The area is a bird watcher's paradise. There is also ample opportunity for fishing and walking.
The nearest pub is sixteen miles away and the nearest town is Stornoway, twenty six miles away but there is a community shop ten miles away.
The village is quiet and peaceful. The Old Post Office is in the centre of the community and has its own telephone kiosk right outside.
The island is full of historical interest with Calanish Stones only an hour's drive and the Norse Mill at Shawbost and Iron Age settlement at Bosta a similar distance.
The Isle of Harris offers contrasting scenery and some of the most spectacular beaches to be found in Europe.
The most important feature of this area is the tranquillity and a brief view of a totally different way of life.
