A favourite destination for those sailing to the Outer Hebrides and exploring the islands by boat, Stornoway is the largest harbour in the Outer Hebrides. Stornoway port is well sheltered and easy to access at all states of the tide for vessels up to a maximum length of 20 metres and 3m draft in all weather conditions.

The 80-berth marina provides a safe haven for island hoppers and day sailors. With brand new facilities, there is fresh water readily available on the pontoons along with shore power and Wi-Fi.

Marina lies right in the heart of the town centre, which provides ample opportunity to explore the culture and tradition of Lewis that makes it so unique today. As the major settlement in the islands Stornoway has all you would expect in a bustling coastal town. Transport links can take visitors to see the most iconic attractions and activities that gained this island the accolade of being voted Europe's top island by Tripadvisor in 2014.
