I've always fancied trying a Segway but never had the opportunity before. And I'm so glad I did it. Full training was supplied in the car park before setting off, the instructor Findlay was very friendly and helpful, explained and demonstrated every clearly, and was very patient with this complete novice. After training we set off on our ride around... More

I last took a trip with Segway Hebrides about 3.5 years ago, soon after this venture was launched. I had a fantastic time then, and am now kicking myself for leaving such a long gap, as my second recent jaunt was even better. On this occasion I took my sister, who was visiting Stornoway, along; it was her first experience... More

We were a group of 5 ranging in age from 14 to 59; all first time Segway users. Finlay has us all up and using the machine in no time. He was an entertaining and most charming tour guide. The tour of the Lews Castle grounds was fantastic and were disappointed when it was over. It was a highlight of... More

First time on a Segway and what a great time we had. I'm a cyclist and steering was slightly counterintuitive to begin with but it's very easy to pick up and brilliant fun once you get the hang of it. The castle with views of the harbour are a great setting and Findlay was and excellent guide and a great... More

Unfortunately were rained out (I know it's Stornoway but it was pouring!). We were unable to reschedule due to it being our last day here. Spoke with the owner and he graciously refunded us 50% of our prepaid fee. Was fair considering he had a no refund policy so I appreciate the leniency and empathy. I will definitely go back... More

My wife and I booked to do the tour of Stornoway castle grounds and it was fantastic. Our guide was great, the scenery is stunning and the segways were really easy to use and brilliant fun. Highly recommend.

We visited this week and had a great time. Both of us had never tried a segway before so it was great to have proper training before hand. Despite the Scottish weather we had a great time and were taken round the hilly, beautiful castle grounds and our guide gave us a great history and background on the castle and... More

Best part of the holiday & we've only got 2 days left. Superb way to see Lews castle area. You must give it a go, a bit nervy at first but excellent instructor & instructions guide you through it. Then once I was on my way there was no stopping me, well until we had to stop off for the... More
