Callanish Stones

Tour guide

New visitors to Lewis are often surprised to find that the Isle of Lewis and its land linked neighbour Harris are much larger that they envisaged.  Often visitors make the mistake in believing they can ‘see and do’ all that the islands have to offer in a couple of days and leave disappointed having missed so many opportunities.

Garrabost is is an ideal location to plan your holiday from. Within easy driving distance of both the airport, ferry services and Stornoway town, visitors note we are easy to find and with so many attractions on Lewis within easy driving distance, no time is wasted in making the most of your Hebridean holiday.
