“Great views”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

One of the best things you can do as you arrive in Stornoway is head up to the Lews Castle ground and look down over the harbor. Such long views and you can just watch the world go by, so relaxing.

“Interesting walk”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

The harbour although not busy in September has excellent scope for walking, either on the town side or in the extensive Lews Castle grounds.

“Pretty!”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

This is a very quaint area, quiet during the week. There is a huge variety of shopping, and is a good place to stock up on things before you continue to explore the Outer Hebrides.

“Nice Harbour”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Lovely reflections off the fishing boats at high tide. Ferry links, generally pleasant place to be. Always good to look at on the way back home form the HebCelt Festival.
