Instructor was very friendly and helpful. Walked us through ever step and repeated anything we didn’t understand, tour of castle grounds was interesting, stopped every so often to talk about what was around us and some history. Overall an enjoyable experience and would come again.

I took my boyfriend for his birthday and we had an absolute blast. Findlay was a great instructor and guide as well as being a good laugh. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Stornoway.

Been on two occasions with school groups and found Findlay and colleagues very helpful and accommodating in organising our visits. Kids thoroughly enjoyed their experience and keen to return!

Can't recommend this tour enough, not only as a great way to see the beautiful Lewis Castle grounds but for the sheer fun of learning to manoeuvre and riding the segway itself. We received excellent, friendly, explicit instruction that helped us get to grips with...More
