This unforgettable ride takes you from the southernmost ferry port on Harris in the Western Isles to Stornoway, the capital of Lewis and Harris. On the way you’ll pass beautiful beaches, and enjoy idyllic island views and plenty of sweeping bends.

Straight from the Caribbean

At the ferry port of Leverburgh take the A859 to the northern side of the island with scenic mountains ahead of you. Harris is known for its stunning beaches and it doesn’t take long to reach them. Take a short detour down Luskentyre for the most famous of all: Luskentyre beach, with white sand and breath-taking aqua-blue water. Scottish paradise!

A Peaceful Trip

Back on the A859 and into Lewis, savour the quiet Hebridean road that winds effortlessly through mountains and hills. Weather on the island is famously changeable, so keep an eye on excess water on the road surface as you enjoy the views that sweep into Stornoway.
