Originally owned by Norman John MacLeod, this house was passed to his sister Mary, who was a sub-postmistress. As such, the building was for many years the island's Post Office, with mail unloaded on the nearby shoreline. At the time of writing (2015) the property still retains a distinctive red roof. Following Mary's death in 1952, the property was bought by Neil Turner.
This property, now known as 12a Backhill, is referred to as 'house no 37' in the croft history of the area.
