All reviews sea birds light house red brick crashing waves bird life nearby village spectacular location sunny day long drive impressive structure single track road worth the journey coastal walk lovely spot well worth a visit outer hebrides walk around
Even in the driving rain and intense winds, this is a place not to be missed. The shocking beauty of the place and the total possibility that you could be blown off a cliff to your death will make you feel alive!
You know where the middle of nowhere is? Well, try the Butt of Lewis. We were really impressed by the views on this northernmost point of the Isle of Lewis. It was stunning. The pictures are the best illustration.
Next stop America!
So have to visit this place- windy, lonely, exposed- but amazing views, incredible cliffs and astonishing waves though thankfully on day we visited not teaching the cliff tops!
Apart from car parking no other facilities - but nearby Ness has a cafe.
This lighthouse is a little out of the way, so you need a car to reach it, and honestly the lighthouse is not the focus. While it is nice, and one of the few brick lighthouses left, the real attraction is the view. The cliffs...More

I hate heights, I truly do. In this instance there is no actual ascending the lighthouse, but the cliffs which surround it are sheer and CLOSE to the actual structure. My fear of falling kicked in as I watched visitors creep closer and closer to...More
The lighthouse was only one thing that made our day. There were a lot of birds and the view from the cliffs were amazing. The water was turquoise and the weather couldn’t be nicer. Enjoyed listening to the waves crash and the birds. Another must...More
I love lighthouses and this is one of the best I have ever seen. It is in a gorgeous location and has been well preserved/cared for. It was so quiet and serene and the drive was wonderful getting to it, also! A must see :-)
