Stornoway is a bustling and attractive town, the main town on the Isle of Lewis which is the largest of the Outer Hebridean Islands, or Western Isles as they are also known. The name, Stornoway, comes from the Norse for "Steering Bay", aptly describing the natural harbour.
During the summer months Stornoway comes alive with festivals and fun days, the most famous being the Hebridean Celtic Festival, an annual event which attracts visitors from around the World.
Boasting restaurants, cafes and in summer a lively night life, Stornoway Town is an ideal base for your Hebridean Holiday and you can't get more central than Esplanade Court.
The Islands of Lewis and Harris are land bridged so you can spend your day lazing, or exploring the famous beaches on Isle of Harris, or Uig and still be home for tea! There are also other Hebridean Islands to explore, there is Scalpay, accessible by bridge from Harris and also Great Bernera crossing the 'Bridge over the Atlantic' - don't forget to look out for the standing stones at the bridge.
