  • Even though you can't go in the lighthouse, the view from the Butt was amazing. there were several places to stop off and scramble down to beaches below. Very worth the drive.  more »
  • The views are incredible from Here, but you cannot go into the lighthouse which is a real shame. It's a long drive, but coming from jig, you pass the callanish stones, the botch, black house and black...  more »
  • The Butt of Lewis Lighthouse is worth the trip for the beautiful location and the view of the ocean. I will say there isn't much here except the lighthouse and an information board with a few details....  more »

  • What a beauty! It's worth a visit if time allows. Gorgeous surroundings and an impressive lighthouse. The small parking area and an information board are the only facilities. No entry to the lighthouse.
  • This is at the end of the long and winding road from Stornoway where the road ends and the Atlantic continues. On a day like today this is a spectacular spot with the surf pounding against the rocks in the blue or grey seas depending on the light conditions
  • What a fantastic place to visit on Lewis. Described as the windiest place in UK, you can be sure you will need a warm jacket, most helpfully rainproof, and a tight hold on your camera as you take in the stunning views. A worthwhile detour for all. Be careful of the recent landslides.
  • Beautiful views. Amazing beaches just down the road from the lighthouse
  • This place feels like the end of the world. I I don't tell it in a negative way, all the contrary, the Butt of Lewis is one of those spots on this island where you breath that feeling moving daring men and women to explore new, unknown territories. The rocks and the angry sea paint some amazing scenarios.
