I'm not exactly sure who you're looking at, so lets find exactly where the 1901 Lochalsh postmaster is living.
First, to find out who it is, a look up at:

http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/census-1901/ind...

gets
Allan McKenzie - - 1875-05-01 1876-07-10 Resignation
James McKinnon - - 1876-10-01 1877-12-18 Resignation
Murdoch McKenzie - - 1878-07-01 1880-09-28 Resignation
J.G. Murdock - - 1881-02-01 1890-08-13 Resignation
A.R. Finlayson - - 1890-12-01 1915-06-30 Closed R.M.D.


Drilling down at the LAC gateway
http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/index-e.html
gets the census links page
http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/genealogy/022-911.009-e.h...


Now a look up at AG gets (I've included the prior h/h too)


1901 Census of Canada Page Information
District: ON HURON (West/Ouest) (#75)
Subdistrict: Ashfield A-6 Page 7
Details: Schedule 1 Microfilm T-6474
17 54 McLennan Fin M Head M Mar 24 1865 36
18 54 McLennan Barbara F Wife M Oct 10 1863 38
19 54 McLennan Mary F Daughter S May 20 1897 4
20 54 McLennan Annie F Daughter S Sep 6 1899 2
21 54 McLennan Alick M Son S Jan 13 1900 1

22 55 Findlayson Alick M Head S Aug 1 1870 32
23 55 Findlayson Isabela F Mother M Aug 11 1830 70
24 55 Findlayson Mary F Daughter S Aug 8 1861 40
25 55 Findlayson Christina F Sister S Jun 6 1869 32
26 55 Findlayson Rebecca F Sister S Mar 27 1874 27
27 55 Findlayson James M Nephew S Sep 26 1892 9

Now an LAC look up of Huron A 5 gets
Sched1 http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1901/z/z002/z000072170....
Sched2 http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1901/z/z002/z000072163....

We know we want page 7 line22, but unfortunately the address column is blank for this pair.
Back to AG's 1901, and the "Links" link for Fin McLennan gets the 1911 which does give their addy's.

http://data2.collectionscanada.gc.ca/1911/pdf/e001994688.pdf
1911 - John/Alex Finlayson Conc 14 lot 9 (Fin McLennan C14 L8)


Next, we need a concession map for Ashfield Twp, Huron Co.

http://digital.library.mcgill.ca/countyatlas/SearchMapframes...
Drill down until you get the option of a larger map or an index of people - here's the map
http://digital.library.mcgill.ca/countyatlas/images/maps/tow...

Now these lots look like they're 30 chains x 66.67 chns for a full 200acre lot (80 chns = 1 mile)
Go to http://maps.google.com/ and look up Verdun, ON, Canada and follow the road SW for 3 m until you get to the Bruce Rd, then SE for 1km.
You can still make out the old lots.

From the index, we get:
Full record for Finlayson, A.
Last Name Finlayson
First Name A.
Post Office Lochalsh
Township Ashfield
County Huron
Atlas Date 1879
Concession and Lot Lot size
XIV, 9W 60

There are several for various Mclennan's, too.
