General

  • Spectacularly scenic site on the shores of the Hebridean Isle of Lewis
  • A 25-minute drive from Stornoway and 20 minutes from sandy beaches
  • Five minutes’ walk from café and gift shop at Callanish Visitor Centre

In the market for an oh-so-scenic getaway out in the wilds? Callanish Camping could well fit the bill… The site hugs the shores of the Isle of Lewis – the northernmost of Scotland’s Outer Hebrides – less than five minutes’ drive from the tiny village of Callanish.

Lewis is chock-full of neolithic sites and one of the most famous of these, Callanish Stones, is within almost absurdly easy reach. A five-minute stroll from base will bring guests to the Callanish Visitor Centre where, after exploring the exhibition detailing the stones’ history, an easy saunter will lead to the stone circle that's stood on this spot for nearly 5,000 years.

The Visitor Centre is also a good spot for local eats in the café (although microwaves and electric kettles are provided on site for folk who prefer to whip up their own snacks, and the use of barbecues is allowed). There’s a gift shop here too, so make a beeline when it’s time to pick up some souvenirs.

Prefer to venture beyond Callanish entirely? Those who haven’t travelled by car – or rented one on arrival – can hire bikes in the village for two-wheeled explores of the island.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No unsupervised groups of people under 21 years of age.

A small charge of £1 applies for the use of shower (10 minutes).

    The location was brilliant for exploring north and west Lewis, very peaceful and quiet. The pod was very good for the two of us, with good facilities and a very welcome alternative to camping in the wet. Cathy was an excellent host, very helpful.

    My only tip would be it would be handy to have somewhere inside and outside to suspend a drying line on.

Thank you for your comments. We now have planning permission to place lights along the path so that should make a big difference at night time :)

Local attractions

The Isle of Lewis is a particularly pretty spot for explores, with lochs, moorlands and distant mountains to feast eyes upon. Start with trips to the sandy beaches of Dalmore and Dalbeg, both 20 minutes’ drive from the site, to take in the views and hopefully catch some waves – the surfing on Lewis is renowned.

Further afield, the stunning Mangersta beach (45 minutes) is certainly worth a visit for its sands and its sea stacks, and the white sands of Eoropie beach on the Butt of Lewis, the islands’ most northerly point, are a must for scenic strolls.

Returning to the dry, getting a feel for the island’s history should be a part of any itinerary on Lewis, so make a trip to Gearrannan Blackhouse Village (20 minutes) to experience the lives of old crofting families, getting an insider look at everything from weaving to traditional homemade fare in the café. Call in to the Blackhouse in Arnol (30 minutes) too – it’s set up exactly as it was in the 1960s, so smell the peat smoke, peek inside the box-beds and begin to understand the history.

For more modern days, head along to Stornoway, the capital of Lewis. The port town is the departure point for ferries to the mainland, but also has museums, castle grounds and a loom centre to explore, as well as a handful of shops and restaurants.
