Located on the Ross of Mull Peninsula, which is the south-western peninsula of the Isle of Mull, the third largest island of the Hebrides of Scotland, the Old Post Office benefits from spectacular views over Loch Scridain, north towards Ben More, Mull’s highest mountain and only Munro. Pennyghael is a small village with a population of just over 100 residents and offers a convenience store with part time sub post office. The Inn at Port nan Gael with its “Clansman Bar” serves a superb assortment of dishes that highlight local produce, including locally sourced meat and fish.

The property is located on the A849 which connects to Fionnphort in the southwest and Tobermory, via the A848, to the northeast of the island. Pennyghael is well served by public transport with the 96/496 bus which runs from Craignure to Fionnphort, and from Craignure the 95/495 bus provides a service to and from Tobermory.

The village of Bunessan, approximately 10 miles west, offers further facilities including an additional convenience store with Post Office, the community initiative “Castaways” charity shop, medical centre, mechanics, community hall, police station in addition to the Bunessan Inn, which has been at the heart of the community for three centuries, as well as the Ross of Mull Historical centre which provides an important archive about the people, the history and the natural environment of

the Ross of Mull. The nearest petrol station can be found at Ardfenaig three miles west of the village.

Primary schooling is available at Bunessan Primary School which allows parents to register their children for either English Medium or Gaelic Medium education, with higher education available on the Island’s only high school at Tobermory (40 miles north) where pupils can also study Gaelic. In addition, the school provides for the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze and Silver Awards.

Craignure, approximately 20 miles northeast, is the main ferry port on Mull and provides regular daily services to Oban on the mainland. The Mull and Iona Community Hospital is also located at Craignure and provides an A&E Department, GP acute medicine, women’s health clinic as well as cardiac and an obstetrics services in addition to some speciality clinics.


The Old Post Office is a one and a half storey stone built property finished in painted render under an asbestos slate roof and is believed to date back to the early twentieth century.

The extension, which was added later, is of timber frame construction with a painted render finish to match the rest of the property and covered by a slate roof. There is a mixture of PVC framed and timber framed double glazing. Warmth is provided by electric storage heaters with hot water from an

immersion tank located in the porch attic.

The accommodation extends to approximately 107.5m2 over two floors. The main entrance to the property is via the porch, ideal for storing muddy boots and wet jackets. The ground floor provides an entrance hallway, spacious living room, wood-burning stove for extra space heating, kitchen,

master bedroom and shower room. Access to the garden can be obtained via the kitchen within the single storey extension. While now requiring a degree of internal modernisation to bring it up to the modern standard, the property provides the potential purchaser with the opportunity to create a comfortable family home or holiday retreat. There may even be scope to extend the property further, subject of course to the relevant permissions.

The master bedroom is located on the ground floor to the right of the entrance hallway. This is a large room also benefiting from front facing views. Depending on the new owner’s requirements this bedroom could be converted to a second reception room. The two remaining bedrooms are on the first floor, which affords them elevated coastal views to the front of the property and both benefit from open fireplaces, although it is not known when these were last used. The upstairs is completed by a WC with wash hand basin.


Externally there is a large south facing garden extending to around a third of an acre. The garden is predominately laid to lawn with some mature bushes at its boundary which provides a degree of privacy. With some care and attention part of the garden could lend itself to a vegetable patch or as a space for chicken coops. There is a small stream running down the eastern boundary of the garden.

At the east end of the property there is useful log store and a large tool shed. While to the front there is a gravel driveway which has space for two cars with the property being bounded by a traditional drystone dyke which adds to the character and charm of the property.

Strictly by prior agreement with the selling agents who should be contacted in advance to advise on access arrangements.


Any offer by prospective purchaser(s), regardless of where they are ordinarily resident and regardless whether on a cash or subject to loan finance basis, must be accompanied by a financial reference from a bank/funding source that is acceptable to the sellers. Prospective purchasers will also be required to produce identification sufficient to satisfy anti money laundering regulations and checks against the intended purchaser or nominee together with other documentation that may be required, from time to time, in order to support any conditional offers submitted to the seller. Bidwells LLP accepts no liability of any type arising from your delay or other lack of co-operation in this regard. Failure to provide the requisite AML documentation with offers may result in them not being considered at the closing date or being superseded by an offer which is. Settlement may also be delayed or aborted due to non-compliance with requests for

information or failure to deliver adequate information within the requisite timeframes. We may hold your name on our database unless you instruct us otherwise.


A closing date may be fixed, and prospective purchasers are advised to formally register their interest through their solicitors with the selling agents. Prospective purchasers should be aware that unless their interest in the property is formally noted, no guarantee can be given that confirmation of a closing date will be provided, consequently the property may be sold without prior notice. For the avoidance of doubt, noting interest only entitles prospective purchasers to notification of a closing date being set and not that other potentially competing pre-emptive offers have been received. The sellers are entitled to accept any offer at any time.
