royal mail post code areas for hammocks
For your hammock, we mainly use UPS for shipments around the UK. Understandably they charge a different rate when shipping to remote Scottish Highlands areas or the Islands surrounding the UK. Jersey and Guernsey are treated as international locations.

These are the postcodes which are regarded as highlands and islands. The shipping price is about 80% higher than the standard UK postcodes.
