The tour will take you on a journey through the lesser known but stunning eastern side of the Isle of Lewis taking in Tolsta, Broad Bay, Sandwick, Point and Lochs.
You will learn about the fascinating history of these areas, experience some breath-taking white shell sandy beaches, have great wildlife watching opportunities and visit vibrant local community hubs where Gaelic is widely spoken.
We recommend taking the tour over a few days. Perhaps try Tolsta and Broadbay on day 1 (this includes Locations 1 – 6), Sandwick and Point on Day 2 (Location points 7 - 15) and Day 3 to Lochs (locations 16 – 20).
