Stunning scenery
Sep 2021
Rugged scenery adjacent to the lighthouse which is located at the North Western tip of the island. Well worth a visit if touring the Isle of Lewis.

No Toilets . No Gift Shop! Great Beach though :-)
Sep 2021
Supposed to be the windiest place in the UK - we came on the hottest calmest day of September 2021. Walked from the Harbour at Port of Ness to the lighthouse and back. Nice 6 miles round trip. Glorious sunshine and blue skies. We popped down to the lovely beach near the light house carpark. Skimmed stones. No toilets, no facilities - and the info sign could do with the repair as it's been weathered/ vandalised.

Windiest place in UK
Sep 2021 • Friends
It's a well maintained lighthouse with a very dramatic coastline. Its not the most attractive lighthouse TBH but the scenery certainly makes up for it. It is recorded as the windiest place in UK, so you have to take care and not go to close to the edge but its definitely worth visiting.

Come here for - Cliffs and wind
Sep 2021
Always windy. Highest wind speed of the UK recorded here. Also where the Hebridean Way finishes, therefore it seems everyone pays a visit even if only for a few minutes. There is a way marked walk along the cliffs which we think is worth doing. On a nice day it must be a great spot to sit and watch the crashing waves.

Worth a visit
Aug 2021 • Family
It was a beautiful day when we visited. Surrounding cliffs and walks are beautiful. As it wasn’t windy we enjoyed a picnic and our family walk.
We also went to the port of Ness. There is a beautiful white Sandy beach.
Worth a visit.

Nice views
Aug 2021 • Friends
It was a bit drizzly when we were there. I have definitely seen more beautiful lighthouses though this one seems very well taken care off. To me the area around it with the cliffs and stunning views were the winner. Seen some seals who seemed to be very curious. If you are on the island, it would be worth going.

Great walk round the coast

What an incredible spot! The walk around the coast is fantastic, with plentiful wildlife and flora unique to the machair.

Bit windy
Jul 2021
Great to get to the Butt of Lewis to see the Lighthouse, but the cliffs are so steep need to be careful. You can walk down to the little beach bit, before the lighthouse, just lovely.

Excellent scenery and nice lighthouse
May 2021 • Friends
We had a lovely time up here at the lighthouse. As previous people have said the scenery is just stunning up here and well worth a visit. We didn’t stay long as we have young children and after initially waking around and reading the information boards there were very steep cliffs, so not somewhere to stop and play!

Fabulous cliffs
May 2021 • Couples
The lighthouse is a lovely structure but what makes this a great place to visit are the
dramatic cliffs and the wild seas and the seabirds nesting in the rocks and the thrift.
We found it enthralling as a spectacle. Well worth the visit.
