Chris (better known as Chris the Postie) is Craiglang's postman. He is played by Scottish actor Sandy Nelson.

Chris is not exactly the brightest lad in Craiglang. It usually falls on one of the older gentlemen to explain a situation to him. As such, he is sometimes given abuse off of Jack and Victor, however, Isa has a soft spot for him. Chris does have his uses, however, as can be seen in the 2005 Christmas Special when he helped Tam to dispose of his Christmas cards into the canal. Chris usually refers to 'Her Majesty's post' in order to sound more important. In the Series 5 episode 'A Fresh Lick', it is revealed that Chris used to work as an interior decorator when Isa hired him to redecorate her flat.
