“Sea Glass heaven”
Review of Stornoway Harbour

Reviewed 7 August 2018

The harbour is fairly basic, ferry terminal, some fishing boats and a couple of pubs. However, the tide was out and as we looked over the low stone wall the shingle 'beach' was a blaze of sea glass. We spent only five minutes collecting the sea glass but couldn't believe how much there was. At high tide this area is completely under water so timing s important. Lots of nice sculptures around the area and a short walk to the castle. Beware that nothing is open on Sundays so use that day for sightseeing around the island.

We weren’t sure what to expect as this was our first trip with Calmac. Getting tickets was straight forward, although the email said we needed to print confirmation of our booking we didn’t have to.
The ferry journey was comfortable. Services on board were ample for a short journey of 2.5hrs. The food was tasty on both legs of our trip.

Lots of lovely boats to see here,fishing boats and yachts of all sizes. There are several bronzes in the surrounding area, a herring girl, with a basket of herrings and a fisherman wearing his sou’wester. The grandchildren were able to shake his hand.
A really nice wee harbour.

It's a fine harbour to walk around. Lots to see around. Birds are mainly gulls.
Nice walks on a nice day.

Lovely traditional fishing harbour, nice to walk around. Very picturesque, especially when seen from the Lews Castle grounds (within walking distance from the harbour) or from aboard the ferry on a sunny day.
