Dingwall Mobile Service IV15 9SN - 303840

Closed 15 Sep 2021

Opened 18 Aug 2021

Overview

We are delighted to let you know that, following the temporary closures of Post Offices in Evanton, Ardross, Rosehall, Munlochy, Glenmoriston, Dochgarroch, Dores and Farr, we are restoring Post Office services to those communities with the introduction of a new Mobile service. The Mobile service in Evanton, Glenmoriston and Dochgarroch will commence on Thursday 16 September 2021, the Mobile service in Ardross and Rosehall will commence on Tuesday 21 September 2021 and Mobile service in Munlochy, Dores and Farr will commence on Wednesday 22 September 2021.

Additionally, this Mobile service will provide a temporary service to the local communities of Dalneigh and Hilton while we continue to seek a permanent solution. The Mobile service in Dalneigh will commence on Thursday 16 September 2021 and Mobile service in Hilton will commence on Wednesday 22 September 2021.

We’ve been working hard to identify a solution to restore services in the above areas.  A Mobile service, which is a travelling Post Office aboard a specifically designed vehicle that brings Post Office services and retail products to communities without relying on fixed premises, is a tried and tested way of maintaining service to smaller communities.

We are therefore pleased to inform you that the postmaster from Dingwall Post Office is willing to run the Mobile service, which presents the best possible solution to restore Post Office services to those communities.

Further details of all new services are provided in letter below.
