More information about Old Post Office

Property information

The Old Post Office at Drinishader is situated on what is known as The Golden Road on the east side of Harris. This lesser visited area is a true gem and well rewards heading for. The Golden Road winds its way down the coast revealing new vistas at each bend as the views across to Skye are lovely. Small lily strewn lochans and swathes of bright yellow flag irises encapsulate all that these untouched areas of the Western Isles offers. However, it's perfectly possible to enjoy the pleasure of the west coast beaches such as Luskentyre, Horgabost, Seilibost and Scarista and they are all between 20 minutes and half an hour drive. For the keen hill walker, the North Harris Hills are not far and you will rarely meet others as you climb to the top of The Clisham but the view will stay with you forever. This is just a great family holiday house brought to the market in summer 2018 and newly renovated.

Visitor comments

  • Lindsay Middleton
    Stayed here from the 15th of June for seven nights, on arrival my wife and I were totally blown away by the beautiful house and its location . The accommodation is one of the best we have stayed in , the quality of the furniture and the equipment was first class , there was everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. The view from the garden is stunning , the owners Donald and his wife Johan have really gone the extra mile with this place , their hospitality was fantastic . The only minus is we couldn't stay longer. We would thoroughly recommend this wonderful cottage to any one wanting peace tranquility and luxury. Thank you Donald and Johan , Billy and Julie.
