Bonar Bridge’s Post Office and adjoining house was purchased by the Trust in May 2014. This opportunity enabled the community of the Kyle of Sutherland to secure the Post Office as a stand-alone service in its current location at a time when the trend was for post office branches across Sutherland to close and be relocated into other shops such as newsagents and chemists.
Community consultation was overwhelming in its support for the Post Office remaining in its location on the Lairg Road as one of the key services in the village. This has retained two jobs (with four additional postal delivery jobs being retained in the area). This also provides a cashpoint for the village.
