      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Stornoway has more than meets the eye

      Stornoway has a huge amount to offer for the discerning traveller. Whether you are away for some adventure or relaxation you can find it here. There are a huge amount of activities, from kayaking to climbing, power kiting to sailing on a thouroughbread racing yacht.

      If you are interested in historical sites then Stornoway is the perfect base. On the Isle of Lewis is standing stones older than Stonehenge and a set of chessmen were once found on island that have been voted one of the 10 most important historical finds in UK.

      The nightlife is good with open mic nights and a variety of live music at the weekends to suit every taste. The food in the restaurants are fresh, local and second to none, and the air is so clean and clear that it could be bottled and sold to Americans for an absolute fortune.

      Come to Stornoway and experience it all for yourself
