You can be exploring the North and West of Lewis with some of the best beaches in the world in less than an hour. Have a wander around the lighthouse at the Butt of Lewis, visit the jaw dropping sands of Uig, stroll through the Blackhouse village or visit the spectacular Callanish Standing Stones which are older than Stonehenge!
Stornoway is a great place to explore. The working harbour is so picturesque with Lews Castle overlooking the water. There are 270 hectares of lush castle gardens and grounds to explore. For a wee shopping trip, there’s also plenty of lovely local eateries and shops selling local gifts such as Harris Tweed.
Go slightly further afield and explore Harris which makes up the south of the island and is separated only by the hills of North Harris. Here’s where you’ll find many sights including the spectacular Luskentyre Beach and the Isle of Harris distillery. Feeling more energetic? then take on some epic hill walking on An Clisham, the highest peak in the Outer Hebrides standing at 799m tall.
Alternatively, hop on one of the many boat trips leaving from Tarbert or Leverburgh. There’s so much to do and see on both Lewis and Harris that you’ll want to be out exploring every day. Return from your daily adventures to your cosy cottage to unwind.
There are lots of fantastic local walks if you fancy spending your days closer to home. Take the dog for a walk to visit the stunning Tiumpan lighthouse only a 30-minute walk away (4 min drive). Use the viewing platform to search for whales, dolphins and porpoises. This is an official sighting spot for the Whale and Dolphin Conservation group! Watch the many nesting seabirds on the cliffs. On a clear day the mountains of mainland Scotland can be seen across the Minch (the body of water between the Western Isles and the Scottish mainland). You’re also a ten-minute walk from a lovely small beach. Explore the nearby coastal path which is accessed only a few minutes' walk away.
Fancy the night out? Use a local taxi service to pop into nearby Stornoway for a visit to one of the pubs and restaurants. Return to your wee cottage at the end of the evening to enjoy some well-earned relaxation.
Take the chance to experience the legendary Lewis summer sunsets and the beautiful Northern Lights in winter with some of the darkest night skies around. As the Western Isles is fortunate enough to be blessed with a micro-climate of its own, you are sheltered from some of the colder spells the rest of Scotland faces in the winter months.
Whatever you decide to do with your stay I expect you’ll fall in love with the island just as we did. Once you fall in love with the Outer Hebrides it never leaves you!
