Butt of Lewis Lighthouse

There is a great 6km walk around the Butt of Lewis, the most northerly point in the Outer Hebrides and one of the windiest places in the UK. As well as the dramatic coastal path that often hugs the top of the steep cliffs, the walk also takes in the 37m high red-brick lighthouse built by the famous Stevenson family in 1862:

    Went there myself in the last month – in fact, did all three lighthouses over the holidays – although my trip here was really flat light – it’s a cracking situation though.
