Port of Stornoway

About Stornoway, Guide and Tourist Attractions
(Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland, UK)

Stornoway, on the Isle of Lewis, is essentially a travel hub, being home to both an airport and a ferry port.

Perhaps not the best place on the Isle of Lewis in terms of attractions and things to do, the rest of the island offers plenty of interests and passengers choosing to spend a day or two either side of their ferry crossing will find more than enough to occupy their time.

What to Do in Stornoway

The annual Hebridean Celtic Festival which takes place in Stornoway every summer is one of the town's major draw cards. Some of the UK's finest Celtic musicians, both traditional and alternative, play during the festival, which spans several days. The town is also the home of Lews Castle, a neo-Gothic construction that overlooks the area as well as offering a recently opened art gallery and a cinema. The tourist information centre located on Cromwell Street can provide more information about things to do in the area.

Tourist Attractions

Head out of Stornoway to the greater Isle of Lewis area and you'll find a large selection of notable attractions. In Coll, for example, there's the Broad Bay Ceramics Centre, a traditional Scottish pottery producer that invites visitors to view some of the intricacies of the pottery-making process. Meanwhile, the beaches of West Lewis are ideal for taking pleasant strolls along or even for sunbathing if the weather is good. Other notable places of interest include the Isle of Great Bernara and the Whale Bone Arch.
