"Stornoway at last!" Top 5 Page for this destination Stornoway by margaretvn

Stornoway Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 83 photos

For so long I have been waiting and hoping for a page for Stornoway and now al last i have one. Now I will have to dig out my photos and information and get working on my page.
We visited the little town of Stornoway during a trip where we visited several of the Western Isles. I think it is a part of the United Kingsdom which is often forgotten as a holiday destination but it is a lovely part of the world with a tantalising mixture of (very old) history a culture which has survived the passage of time, and a majestical nature. We loved it and want to go back one day ..... more to come as soon as possible

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:nature, history and peace
  • Cons:the weather COULD be a con

    Great page! I love Harris tweed so I'd like to see its origins. I hope all is well with you :)

    This is the sort of place that I love to visit! Thanks for the great tips. It was great to read about the standing stones & the Pict tower! I fully agree with your views on picnics!

    Thanks a lot for your advice, a great help. Planning to go there in September. Sounds like just the right place if you are looking for long walks, marvellous nature and not too many other tourists.
