About the neighbourhood
Being only 5 miles from the main town of Stornoway where you will find most amenities, Seascape Cottage which is in the village of Knock (Point) has beaches nearby and a café/community shop within a few minutes walking distance. Tiumpan Head which is close by is ideal for spotting whales, dolphins and seabirds including humpback whales, orcas and white tailed eagles. Don’t forget your binoculars and your camera!
Getting around
The 'long' island of Lewis and Harris is mainly geared to car owners, but there are also opportunities for cyclists and walkers.
If you dont have a car then there are local buses that serve most of the island, but you may want to study the timetables first if planning an excursion. Taxi's are also a popular option for visiting the main tourists sites and can act as personal guides as well!.
For the more adventurous there are various sea excursions from Stornoway, Tarbet and near Uig ranging from short trips to see wildlife to full day trips e.g. St Kilda.
Car recommended
How to get there
Airport: Stornoway: 3.0 km
Ferry: Stornoway: 7.0 km
The two main ways to visit the island are either Calmac ferries from Ullapool or Uig on Skye, or by Airplane into Stornoway Airport.
For a more scenic route you could use Calmacs Hopper pass and start from Oban, Heading first to Barra, then working your way up through the Uists to Lewis & Harris. As an alternative you might like to visit the Isle of Mull from Oban first before hitting the Outer Hebrides trail.
