The Blue Letterbox

The Blue Letterbox is a gift shop situated on Frederick Crescent in Port Ellen on the Hebridean island of Islay.

The collection includes many local crafts using tweeds and tartans, hand knitting using locally sourced wool, hand painted slates and tiles, paintings of local scenes and wildlife, jewellery made with sea glass, sterling silver and semi-precious gems, wood and ceramic crafts, scented soaps, hand washes, lotions and candles with hints of local flora and whisky, books for children and books on Islay, local maps, walking guides, postcards, greetings cards and gift wrap.

The Blue Letterbox is also home to Port Ellen Post Office, offering the usual postal services, including a free cashpoint for withdrawals on UK cards and Bureau de Change.

There is free Wi-Fi in the shop.

Our opening hours are: Monday – Saturday 9:00am to 5:30pm (additional seasonal opening).
