The Isle of Lewis retains its traditional Gaelic culture and offers a striking scenic coastline.
Travel towards the village of Callanish, site of the dramatic prehistoric Standing Stones that date from 1500 BC. The stone ruins are rated as the most important in Britain after Stonehenge. During a guided tour, learn the importance of the formation of the stones and the connection with the moon and the stars.
You can continue to admire the surrounding scenery as you head along the Atlantic coastal road, before arriving at the beautifully remote coastal settlement of Gearrannan Blackhouse Village. The restored village of typical blackhouses on the edge of the ocean will take you on a journey back in time. A local guide will provide an insight into the history of the village and the island and you can also enjoy a weaving demonstration. There will also be an opportunity to discover more in the resource centre and to take a stroll along the pathways through the village.
From here the tour return drive will head back inland, crossing eerie open moorlands before reaching Stornoway.
