This is the most Northerly part of Lewis and well worth visiting on your tour of Lewis. It is quite daunting when you realise that when looking west over the Atlantic that the next landfall is Canada. There are spectacular sea cliffs and a really...More

We parked at Eoropie beach by the play park and walked up the road to the lighthouse then back along the cliffs. We thoroughly recommend it! The cliffs are craggy and rocky and we saw seals down below in the shallows. The lighthouse is interesting,...More

Lovely place to visit. Would be very wild in bad weather but spectacular. Good parking. A tea shop would have been a welcoming sight. Loads of people and nowhere to get a drink or snack/
