We visited Tiumpan Head on the last day of our stay on Lewis and it took us about half an hour to drive from Stornoway. The lighthouse is not as spectacular as some on the Hebrides but well worth a visit on a clear day....More

We took several pictures of the lighthouse and the surrounding landscape. It is a nice scenic drive to Tiumpan Head.

Go for the views, not the lighthouse. Around and past the lighthouse has magnificent views. If you get a good day you could be there for an hour just soaking it all in. See attached photos. Absolutely beautiful.
