Experience the heartland of Gaelic culture on the Isle of Lewis. Your first stop is the prehistoric Callanish Standing Stones, considered the most important in Britain after Stonehenge. Your guide will point out their unique formation, aligned with the moon and stars. Afterwards, travel on to Arnol to see the remains of abandoned blackhouses, where the poor lived alongside their animals, and visit the restored Blackhouse Museum. Step back in time and imagine what it would have been like to live within its thick walls and thatched roof, with its homely furnishings and burning peat fire.
