Stornoway/Tarbet (Isles of Lewis/Harris)

The islands of Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides are normally approached via the port of Stornoway on the North Island – Lewis, although ships do occasionally call into Tarbet on Harris (the South Island). Tours feature remote island life through history and the crofting traditions at Arnol Blackhouse on the Life & Times of Lewis tour, as well as the captivating Callanish standing stones of prehistoric times. A longer tour can also be taken down to the beautiful South island of Harris either returning to Stornoway, or re-joining the re-located ship at Tarbet. The scenery of these islands is simply outstanding with breathtakingly beautiful remote beaches and rugged mountains in the south on Harris.

Some other tour options include:

Ancient Sites of Lewis
 

A tour that incorporates both the Callanish Standing Stones and Duncarloway Broch: reportedly the best preserved Pictish broch (defence tower dating back to the first 4 centuries of the millenium) in the Hebrides.
