Arnish Point and Stornoway Harbour on the Isle of Lewis Scotland

For the duration of a recent visit to the Isle of Lewis with Northern Constabulary Neighborhood Pipe Band to participate in the Hebrides Tattoo, I was billeted in a lovely Bed and Breakfast on Newton Street, Stornoway. The street, and residence, overlook Stornoway Harbour, Goat Island (now linked to Lewis mainland by causeway/breakwater) and Arnish Point with its tiny but completely formed lighthouse.

The views from my accommodation were completely excellent, and the sky was constantly altering. I just hope my restricted photographic skills have managed to do the views justice!

The climate that weekend was generally extremely pleasant – albeit interspersed with bursts of heavy rain, which is hardly surprising given the place on the eastern edge of the North Atlantic Ocean, on the exact same latitude as the Northern component of Labrador (Canada) and not far south of Greenland’s latitude.

The Isle of Lewis is the northernmost, and biggest of the chain of Islands which make up the Western Isles, or Outer Hebrides, to the west of the Scottish Mainland. Stornoway is the chief town of Lewis, and its principal harbour/port. Prior to 1975, the Islands were split in between the mainland counties of Ross &amp Cromarty (Lewis) and Inverness (Harris, the Uists and Barra). In 1975 even so, local government reorganisation designed a new all-goal local authority for the Western Isles (Gaelic: Comhairle nan Eilean Siar) with Stornoway the administrative headquarters.

Founded by the Vikings in the 9th century, the name Stornoway (Steornabhagh in Scottish Gaelic) comes from the old Norse ‘Stjórnavágr’, which means ‘steering bay’. Even back then its sheltered harbour was an crucial refuge from the weather, and so it has remained.

Other than air links, connection to the mainland is by signifies of a roll-on, roll-off ferry – MV Isle of Lewis, which plies from Stornoway to the village of Ullapool on the West Coast of the Scottish Highlands (2 hours 45 minutes).

Stornoway Harbour mouth on Isle of Lewis Scotland

A photograph taken from the MV Isle of Lewis throughout a current check out to the Isle of Lewis with Northern Constabulary Community Pipe Band to participate in the Hebrides Tattoo.

This photo shows the rather narrow entrance to the organic harbour of Stornoway.

On the left had side is Arnish Point with its modest but perfectly formed lighthouse.

In the centre, high on the hill is the War Memorial to the many who fell in both wars.

On the right are the rocks referred to as the Beasts of Holm, complete with green warning pillar (NO light!!) mounted on best of the rocks.

It was on these generally submerged rocks which HM Yacht Iolaire founded in the early hours of 1st January 1919. The vessel was carrying neighborhood sailors back home from war service and seems to have missed the appropriate channel, resulting in the boat wrecking on the Beasts, only yards from land and resulting in the loss of more than 200 guys.

I have uploaded a couple of closer shots of the place, with far more details pertaining to the tragedy.

I can specifically advise Guido’s Iolaire memorial site www.adb422006.com/iolaire.html which gives such a great amount of information concerning the tragedy.

God Bless all those who perished in that disaster, and their families.

This is a great shot of Mark, which I can not claim to have taken (even even though it was taken with my camera!). At the 1st Gallery Hop of the season, I helped participate in a ritual tattooing accomplished by Charlotta of Tattoo Charlies.

Mark and I were protectors/energy channelers. Here Mark stands outside the Tom’s Antique Shop exactly where the occasion was held.
