There is a unique opportunity to buy the World’s Oldest Operating Post Office at Sanquhar in Dumfries and Galloway for just over a quarter of a million pounds.

The historic Post office in South West Scotland has a real postal heritage attracting many visitors. Originally opened in 1712 now becoming world’s oldest working post office according to the Guiness Book of Records. For the 307 Since then it has been in constant service.

The original post men delivered the mail on foot and were called Runners, they would work in a relay system. As no one had letter boxes in their doors then, the postmen would knock on your window when delivering your post.
