You can visit the Tweed Heritage Centre on Harris, or try the An Lanntair centre in the main town of Stornoway if you prefer contemporary art and want to hear traditional music.

Lewis and Harris is home to a number of fascinating prehistoric sites, and one of the most popular with visitors is Callanish Stones. Situated to the west of the island, these standing stones are arranged in an unusual cross formation around a central circle and are thought to be at least 1500 years old.
If you are more interested in recent history, look into the possibility of a boat trip to St Kilda, an even more remote island which was cleared of its last inhabitants in 1930 and now acts as a reserve for native seabirds.
