Lovely working harbour which we walked round on a windy Sunday. We were lucky enough to see seals by the boats. From there you can easily walk up to the castle which has nice walks and a lovely cafe.

Visited family and used the harbour as a good place to park It’s also a great place to view the fishing boats and the many seals that are in the harbour

Very relaxing to walk here on a December afternoon, only the fishers are busy (and the seals around their boats), everything else is still, the low Sun makes you feel a special all-day-sunset. Timeless moments.

The harbour is worth a walk around. One can view a number of fishing boats, mainly for inshore shell fishing.

This is a big, busy, colourful, fishing port, with lots of history and maritime interest. It's worth a visit as is Lew's Castle nearby.

Only visited to get 4G and because we had to catch the ferry. Plus it's the only place on the island with shops!

This is an interesting place to wander around but it's certainly not set up as a visitor attraction - it's a working port and ferry terminal. The shops and places to eat are scattered around the back streets but are no great shakes. The evenings...More

We took the local transport and really enjoyed the trip to Callanish. The bus took us to many villages outside of Stornoway giving us many views of the Island.
