Post Office, Balallan

Post Office, Balallan

In 1885, a thrice-weekly mail service had begun from Stornoway to Tarbert with the mail for Lochs being delivered from Balallan. The house at 67 Balallan was originally an important staging post for the mail, where the mail horses could be fed, watered or changed.

In 1886, Laxay got its own post office, covering Laxay and Keose. This continued until 1901 when each village got its own Post Office.
