AMHUINNSUIDHE & the Isle of Harris...

Situated on the north-west coast of Harris, Amhuinnsuidhe Castle is accessible by both air and sea.

Surrounding Amhuinnsuidhe Castle is a vast, dramatically contrasting landscape. A land of rare, untainted beauty that cannot be found elsewhere, it has been designated both a 'Special Protection Area' and a 'Site of Special Natural Interest.'

Otters tumble and play in the surrounding waters and salmon leap while they wait for the right moment to return to the place of their birth. Golden eagles circle and soar over the neighbouring hills and cliffs while gannets plummet into the sea.

Air

The airport at the nearest main town of Stornoway, an hour's drive away, is served by regular daily scheduled flights from the two Scottish international airports of Glasgow and Edinburgh. Charter flights into Stornoway are also available.

Sea

Caledonian MacBrayne is the principal ferry operator to the Western Isles, providing passenger and car services from Ullapool to Stornoway and from Uig (Skye) to Tarbert. Information about ferry times can be obtained from Caledonian MacBrayne on (01475) 650 100 and at www.calmac.co.uk

Feeling Adventurous?

Those with their own yacht can sail into the castle's own secure anchorage, while helicopters from the mainland are another option.
