Ideal for a family, Old Post Office is a pretty stone-built holiday cottage and, as the name implies, was the estate's own post office until the 1970s.  It stands by a quiet road with spectacular views over Dunalastair Loch to the famous mountain, Schiehallion, half of which belongs to the estate. 

Many interesting birds can be seen on the loch, together with red squirrels, otters, pine marten and other rare wildlife in the surrounding area. The wild orchids along the lochside in the spring are magnificent and there is an abundance of other wild flowers. In winter there are whooper swans visiting the loch, which is a lovely sight and sound, in summer the ospreys can be seen above the loch.

You can walk directly from the cottage along next to the loch and from there off road past the ruined mansion house to the hills behind.

This lovely holiday home has an enclosed garden with tubs, roses and clematis. A burn (stream) runs through it and an old-fashioned red (public) telephone box stands nearby. The front garden is enclosed within the garden to keep small children away from the burn.
