“Visit the Gearrannan blackhouse village to see what villages looked like on Lewis until not all that long ago. The original village blackhouses have been renovated and re-thatched. Get a feel for what island life used to be like. There is a shop and sometimes weaving demonstrations.”

“Located within Lews Castle (the Victorian-era castle which overlooks Stornoway), the recently opened Museum nan Eilean provides a good overview of the history of the Outer Hebrides, which also includes interactive exhibits for children. Perfect for rainy days, there is also a cafe (which is open on Sundays), and the grounds of Lews Castle offer some lovely walks.”

“The Castle Grounds is on the doorstep of the Bayhead flat so you have easy access to one of the islands greatest resources. There are lots of walks including the Creed River Walk; Gallows Hill walk; Willowglen walk; or just a leisurely walk to Cuddy Point. Many users of the grounds cycle and additional routes are being added to accommodate cyclists. Most of the Castle Grounds is vehicle free making it safe for children and animals to run free but please be careful. Finally pop into the newly refurbished Castle and explore the museum and various deluxe rooms.”
