Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Scotland

The primary port in the Outer Hebrides, Stornoway is located on the Isle of Lewis, the northernmost and largest of the Outer Hebrides, otherwise known locally as the Western Isles, some 30 miles off the northwest coast of Scotland. The island offers stunning white sand beaches, steep mountains, calm lochs, and endless skies. Stornoway was founded by the Vikings around the 9thcentury and its name means “Steering Bay.” Today the island offers a unique blend of traditional heritage—it remains a stronghold of the Gaelic language and culture—and modern style. The compact harbor area is close to restaurants, cafes, shops and historical sites. Scenic and easy to navigate on foot, Stornoway offers something for everyone.
