New address for Royal Mail

The Royal Mail in Stornoway is on the move to a new address next Monday.

From April 4, Stornoway Delivery Office postmen and women will be permanently based in new premises at 2 Rigs Road.

Following a fire in November 2007, which destroyed the previous premises, Royal Mail moved to temporary accommodation in Rigs Road, Stornoway.

Royal Mail and their staff look forward to welcoming customers to their new and improved delivery office located at 2 Rigs Road, a distance of 200 yards from the existing temporary location at Rigs Road, Stornoway. The opening hours will remain the same.

Eddie Mackenzie, Royal Mail’s Islands Manager said: “I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to open this new Delivery Office in Stornoway. Royal Mail postal services are extremely important for the community and this delivery office is a vital asset to the local area.”
