Island dreaming

Written by Fiona May 18 2009

There are parts of Scotland that might take a while to reach but which offer a real and rare chance to completely unwind. The Isle of Lewis did just that for us a couple of years ago during a wonderful week’s family holiday. With miles of remote and stunning coastline and beautiful, quiet roads we spent many days simply pottering around in outdoors heaven. For anyone who likes to walk, cycle or surf then Lewis really is hard to beat. One of our friends, Wendy, has a holiday house that she is letting out this summer so I thought I’d recommend it as a great place to stay on Lewis. You won’t regret making the trip.
