Location & Travel
The Western Isles are a chain of islands off the north west coast of Scotland. Stornoway on the island of Lewis is the largest town and has all the leisure facilities of a modern town. Although Stornoway Golf Club is the only 18-hole course on Lewis, there is a fine 9-hole course at Scarista in Harris. Additionally there is an 18 hole course at Askernish South Uist and 9-hole courses at Sollas North Uist, Benbecula and Barra that are well distributed geographically throughout the length of the islands to provide the travelling golfer a variety of challenges with scenery that will take the breath away.
Stornoway is served by Caledonian Macbrayne who operate the modern roll-on/roll-off car and passenger ferry ‘Isle of Lewis’ from Ullapool, which is just one hour’s drive from Inverness. There are two or three return trips from Monday to Saturday depending on the time of year.
Ferries to the other islands sail from Uig in Skye, Mallaig and Oban. Special packages include the Island Hopscotch – a choice of pre-planned routes for cars and accompanying passengers, and the Island Rover – a runabout ticket with or without a car and which is valid for 8 or 15 days with unlimited travel on most routes.
The following scheduled air services operate from the airport:
Aberdeen – Eastern Airways
Benbecula – FlyBe/Loganair
Edinburgh – Flybe/Loganair
Glasgow – Flybe/Loganair
Inverness – Flybe/Loganair

The course at Stornoway Golf Club is set amongst the woodlands of Lews Castle and rises out of these towards the moorlands to the west of the town. An undulating landscape presents the golfer with a course that demands a keen shot-making ability and a canny judgement of distances.
