Isle of Lewis

The Oban Times - - Community News -

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.
