The idyllic view across the harbour from the ferry pier.

These shots had been taken from on board the ferry MV Isle of Lewis as it created ready to sail from Stornoway, on an overcast afternoon.

Some pictures taken for the duration of a recent visit to the Isle of Lewis with Northern Constabulary Community Pipe Band to participate in the Hebrides Tattoo.

The climate that weekend was generally really pleasant – albeit interspersed with bursts of heavy rain, which is hardly surprising offered the place on the eastern edge of the North Atlantic Ocean, on the exact same latitude as the Northern element 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 major harbour/port. Prior to 1975, the Islands had been split in between the mainland counties of Ross &amp Cromarty (Lewis) and Inverness (Harris, the Uists and Barra). In 1975 even so, nearby government reorganisation designed a new all-objective neighborhood 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’, meaning ‘steering bay’. Even back then its sheltered harbour was an important refuge from the weather, and so it has remained.

Other than air hyperlinks, connection to the mainland is by means 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).
