Location

The Royal Hotel is excellently located for leisure and business visits to Stornoway and the Outer Hebrides (Western Isles).

There are direct air services to Stornoway airport from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Aberdeen and Benbecula.  By sea, Calmac’s MV Isle of Lewis sails between Stornoway and Ullapool, twice each way on all week days (3x some Summer days) and once on Sundays.

Stornoway, the ‘county town’ of the Western Isles, is centrally placed for touring the Isle of Lewis and the most southerly point of the Isle of Harris is only about 1.5 hours’ drive from the Caberfeidh.
