Road Directions

Originally called Obbe, Leverburgh was named after Lord Leverhulme, an English businessman who funded the construction of roads, piers and houses in Lewis and Harris in the 1920s.

The village is virtually surrounded by water and Leverburgh developed into a fishing port. The Anchorage Restaurant is located at the ferry terminal and serves a great selection of dishes.

There are a number of B&Bs in the village alongside a mini market, salon, medical practice and three churches. The Cauldron in Lochside is home to a Post Office and a shop selling gifts, books and clothing.

Leverburgh is well served by public transport with regular buses linking it to the rest of Harris and Lewis. The ferry terminal runs connections with Berneray and North Uist.
