Visit to wild otters in the sea lochs on Lewis
February 21st 2019
Lewis is steeped in history and has a timeless island culture.
The Isle of Lewis is an outer Hebrides island off the west coast of Scotland. It’s rather an unusual island in that it is joined very solidly to the Isle of Harris, with the only border between them being a narrowing of land between two sea lochs. It is the landscape which distinguish Lewis and Harris most, Harris being mountainous and Lewis being flat and low lying, except for Ben More in the south east. Lewis is steeped in history and has a timeless island culture. There are ancient stone circles including the massive Callanish Stones and Gaelic is commonly spoken alongside English with a soft Scottish lilt. As you travel over the flat lands of Lewis you will see sea Otters in the many lochs that intersperse the heathy landscape. Empty white beaches with seals, sea lions are often in view. Locals can still be seen cutting the peats and will easily stop for a chat. The distrintive earthy smell of the peat fires drifts in the wind in winter. Come and visit the treasures of Lewis and stay at Laxdale Bunkhouse on Laxdale Holiday Park, just outside the islands main town and port at Stornoway.
