Silversea Luxury Cruises À STORNOWAY (Isle of Lewis)

STORNOWAY (Isle of Lewis)

Scotland's Outer Hebrides can be rainy, remote and cold – yet their inhabitants rank as the happiest people in the UK. What is their secret? One trip to the lovely port of Stornoway and you’ll soon understand why. View more

Like something on the front of a chocolate box, Stornoway is almost a cliché of everything that is lovely about remotest Scotland: buttercups glowing at the side of single track roads, wisps of bog cotton swaying in the breeze, heather was blooming on the swathes of moorland that cover the interior of the islands, dramatic, romantic landscapes as far as the eye can see … But far from being just beautiful – the mountains, hills, lunar-like rocky plateaus, moorlands, meadows, rugged coastlines and white sandy beaches not to be undermined - Stornoway is full of history, culture and unsurprisingly, more wildlife that you can shake a stick at. Set on the eastern coast of the Isle of Lewis and the Isle of Harris, Stornaway is the capital of the Outer Hebrides, and the jumping off point for all those who want to venture even further north. Although it may sound like two separate islands, Lewis and Harris are actually two parts of the one island, and as such, is full of interesting things to do while you are here. Historians will certainly want to start with the truly magical 5,000 year old Callanish Stones. Scotland’s answer to Stonehenge, these impressive stones are actually part of a cluster of several different archaeological sites in this area. Probably positioned in several stages between 3000 BC and 1500 BC, the grouping consists of an avenue of 19 monoliths extending northward from a circle of 13 stones, with other rows leading south, east, and west. Ruins of a cairn sit within the circle on the east side. Researchers believe they may have been used for astronomical observations, but you can create your own explanations.

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 40-minute drive across Lewis Isle en route to the beautiful west coast of the island. Upon arrival, proceed to Callanish for a visit to the Callanish Standing Stones. Described as 'Scotland's Stonehenge', the Callanish Standing Stones date from around 3000 B.C., and are comprised of a total of 32 stones in a circular and avenue design. It is thought that the site, one of several in the area, was constructed for astronomical observations. The stones stand like a petrified forest on the flat top of a peninsula which reaches out into East Loch Roag. Visit the excellent Visitor's Centre to learn more about the site, and venture out amongst the stones to experience their mysterious atmosphere.


Dun Carloway Pictish Broch

Next, re-board your coast and continue around the west coast of Lewis Isle to the site of the Dun Carloway Pictish Broch. Probably built some time in the last century B.C, it would have occasionally served as a defensible residence for an extended family, with accommodation for animals at ground floor level. It would also have served as a visible statement of power and status in the local area.


Gearrannan Blackhouse Village, Traditional Blackhouses, Museum, Crofting Demonstration

Your tour continues with a drive north to the Gearrannan Blackhouse Village, a reconstructed settlement of traditional blackhouses where people and animals lived in close proximity. The houses were made using dry, stone masonry, and have thatched roofs distinctively weighted down with rocks.

At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately one-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 547 yards (about 500 metres), at times over uneven, soft, and grassy surfaces and inclines, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach and many steps at the sites visited. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair.

En route, pass by grounds that were originally laid out as part of the formal gardens of Lews Castle, built on the foundations of an estate house dating from 1680. The grazing land was transformed into extensive woodlands, large gardens, and a conservatory complex to house a wide range of native and exotic plant species.


Jetty, Colourful Houses, Forest, Gallows Hill, Castle Grounds, Panoramic Views

Next, continue walking along the coast en route to a small jetty offering splendid panoramic vistas across the bay to the colourful houses of Stornoway.

From this viewpoint, take in spectacular panoramic views of Stornoway and its surrounds. This area also features evidence of prehistoric settlements dating back to 4000 B.C., including the largest number of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments around Stornoway.
