By Ferry.

Ullapool to Stornoway

The most common route is to take the ferry from Ullapool (on the north west coat of Scotland) to Stornoway (the main town on Lewis) and that takes 2 hours 45 minutes. From Stornoway to 20A Kirkibost is approximately a 35 minute drive.

Alternatively there is a ferry from Uig on Skye to Tarbert, Isle of Harris. The drive from Tarbert to 20A Kirkibost is approximately 1 hour.

The ferry can be very busy in peak season, especially the first sailing on a Saturday. We therefore recommend you make you confirm your travel plans and availability before you make the house booking.
