Discover the Outer Hebrides at Lews Castle
The grounds are an outstanding example of a mid-to-late Victorian ornamental and estate landscape, with fine elevated views over Stornoway and beyond to the sea. Discover the distinctiveness of the Outer Hebrides, shaped by a unique combination of land, sea and people. Youngsters can dress up to perform various island jobs, learn some Gaelic, and enjoy imaginative activities. Hear from islanders about the Gaelic language, work, religion, emigration and community. View the Outer Hebrides as never before in a wrap-around audio-visual presentation
