Things to Do

Lews Castle was built by the Mathesons in the 19th century and is located on the west side of Stornoway Harbor. Although the castle is only used for educational purposes, visitors are not allowed inside. However, there are rangers outside the castle which provide guided tours for visitors who want to see the castle.

Stornoway Town Hall is another amazing structure that cannot be passed up. Built in 1900 for Lord Leverhulme as a private residence, it is now an all purpose location for various community activities. Amazing architecture and clock tower makes this a great place to take some photos.
