Begin walking along the seafront then cross the bridge following the pathway along the coastline. On the way, pass by grounds that were originally laid out as part of Lews Castle’s formal gardens, built on the foundations of an estate house dating back to 1680. The gra- zing land was transformed into extensive woodlands, large gardens and a conservatory complex to house a wide range of native and exotic plant species.

Explore the castle and the Musem for the Hebrides before returning to the ship independetly. The walk to the castle is 1,7 km, just over 1 mile, and guests will encounter some uneven terrain and steps and it is therefore not wheelchair accessible.
