Steeped in history, the iconic Lews Castle has been a centre of activity and intrigue since the early 19th century. Overlooking Stornoway harbour, the impressive gothic revival style castle was built in the mid 1800’s by Sir James Matheson, a rich merchant who also developed the surrounding area into picturesque woodlands. Since then this beautiful building has also served as a hospital during the Second World War, a college and a school and now as an iconic wedding venue and luxurious holiday destination with Natural Retreats.
Voted the #1 European Island to visit by TripAdvisor in 2014, it’s not difficult to see why the Isle of Lewis consistently receives so much acclaim. From beaches and crystal clear waters that rival the most beautiful islands, to its rich history and stunning scenery, this remote and utterly spectacular destination in the Outer Hebrides is the perfect venue for wedding celebrations and wonderful memories.
