Escape to the wild Isle of Lewis with Stornoway holiday cottages
Stornoway is the primary populated area amidst the wild terrain of Scotland's Outer Hebrides on the Isle of Lewis. From cycling and hiking to fishing and golf, there is something here for everyone who loves the great outdoors and lets a pretty cottage in this quaint but lively town.
A variety of dining
Though Stornoway is a small town, it has a nice selection of restaurants. It's useful to note that most places will stop serving around 9 pm, with the exception of the Balti House, which remains open for an additional couple of hours. The reality of Scottish food is happily far from the idea of battered Mars bars and cans of Irn Bru; in fact, the cuisine is known for succulent game birds, hearty mince and tatties (potatoes), and delicious shortbreads.
The Boatshed Restaurant and Digby Chick are two local favourites and serve a selection of local and modern European dishes. They also both offer excellent seafood due to Stornoway's proximity to the sea. If you're after something more international, then The Thai Cafe or Peking Cuisine should satisfy your cravings.
Nightlife in Stornoway
For a town of fewer than 6000 people, Stornoway certainly has plenty of places to go for an evening drink. Despite the small population, these spots tend to be lively due to their location in the much loved and well-visited Outer Hebrides.
Popular drinking holes with a traditional flair include The Criterion, The Lewis, and The Crown Inn. The output from the local brewery, the Hebridean Brewing Company, is served in many of the pubs; a little asking around and you'll be able to find it easily enough.
The Jager Room is the only music venue in the vicinity and they host a range of excellent acts — check their website for details. If you feel like dining in at your Stornoway accommodation, there are plenty of shops where you can stock up on snacks and treats for your self catering Stornoway cottage.
Exploring the islands
The Outer Hebrides are known for their natural beauty, and it comes as no surprise that much of the area's finest activities are in the great outdoors. Fishing, cycling, walking, and golf represent just the start of what you can do in this region of Scotland.
A few highlights of the Isle of Lewis are Broadbay and Point and North and South Lochs. The former is an imposing inlet, not far from Stornoway, while the latter are just two of the many fresh and saltwater lakes across the island. Enjoy spotting otters, deer, and osprey, among other wildlife.
