Isle of Lewis
BUYERS looking for a property with a bit of Scottish heritage included will be delighted to hear that Katie Morag’s home is up for sale.
The picturesque Lewis property has been used by the BBC to film exterior shots for the popular children’s programme, complete with an ‘Isle of Struay’ and ‘Shop and Post Office’ signs. The building featured in most of the episodes, can be seen in the opening sequence, and was used as the backdrop for the promotional material.
The TV series, based on the books written and illustrated by former Coll author, Mairi Hedderwick, was shot at locations across the Western Isles.
The sites were made-up to look like the fictional island of Struay, believed to be based on Coll where the author brought up her children.
The white-painted home is in the tiny, peaceful and very real Lewis village of Tolsta Chaolais, and the £45,000 price tag also includes a substantial amount of croft land.
