“You shouldn't leave without having had a wander around the Gardens and a wee visit to the museum. A great day out for all the family, young and old. Great for a morning or afternoon if you fancy a quieter day. The Gasta cafe also host live music most weekends.”

Beach
“If you plan a trip to the west side of Lewis then please stop at Dalmore beach. A superb location with awesome waves and a favourite for surfers. Great sand and scenery that your family will enjoy. Toilet facilities are available onsite as well as good parking. Take care in the water though as there are dangerous currents.”
