How to get there
Despite living on an island we are fortunate to be well connected to the mainland. BY AIR Stornoway airport is a 1 hour drive away. There are regular flights from Inverness/Glasgow/Edinburgh/Manchester/London. BY SEA For those who prefer to travel by sea or who are visiting neighbouring islands, the Calmac ferry service gives you various options. Please book your car early as the ferries get very busy in summer. SKYE: Uig - Tarbert ferry (10mins drive away) NORTH UIST: Berneray - Leverburgh (30mins away) MAINLAND: Ullapool - Stornoway (1 hour away) There are buses around the island as well, although you will have more freedom if you do have car. Cycling is another great way to travel around the island.
