Having seen how remote the lighthouse was we decided to drive up to the Butt of Lewis to see it. There isn't a lot to see and there are no facilities close by so only spent around 15 minutes here. Lewis does have better sites...More

It was well worth the journey. The scenery was really lovely with the craggy cliffs and boiling seas. I know it is in the Guiness Book of records as the windyst place in Britain but on the day that we went it was breezy but...More

Came here on a wet & windy day, thought we would have to watch our step of we'd be in America before you!! But it was ok, great rock formations & sea spray, even the gulls were only walking today!
