Lewis, the largest island of the Outer Hebrides, offers amazing opportunities to explore all the elements life on the edge in the Atlantic Ocean with history, heritage, wilderness, wildlife, arts, crafts and crofting culture. Your overnight stay will be at the Royal Hotel in Stornoway, where you can take a stroll along the quay at Stornoway Harbour and hear the shouts of the fishermen as the traditional fleet land the catch of the day before shipping it out to the island’s amazing eateries, smell the unmistakable odour of peat on the air as the smokehouses turn the seafood specimens into island specialities and feel the winds off The Minch that carry so many here from the mainland.
