The Old Post Office in Shannochie is a rarely available gem located in an idyllic location and offering an enthusiastic new owner the opportunity of a lifetime. This semi detached cottage villa encapsulates the former Post Office building and has been extended to create a three bedroom home. Sadly now in a state of disrepair, the property requires a substantial upgrade throughout however the owners have worked with a dynamic local architect to design a sensational earth sheltered home on the site, full details of which can be found by searching reference 21/01010/PP on the North Ayrshire Council planning portal.

Set amidst rolling farmland with beautiful unspoiled shore and forest walks, Shannochie, and the neighbouring villages, are friendly communities enjoying some of Arran’s most spectacular scenery. There are primary schools in the neighbouring Kilmory and Whiting Bay, and the secondary school is situated in Lamlash. The award-winning Isle of Arran Lagg Distillery, the Lagg Hotel and Velo Café are just a short drive away. A few miles to the north, in the village of Blackwaterfoot, there are a selection of shops including butchers, bakers, general store with post office, hairdressers and newsagents.
