Quirky Concrete Companions: Unveiling the Mystery of the Lewis Bus Shelters

You may well stumble upon a peculiar sight during your explorations of the Isle of Lewis. Those squat, concrete structures scattered across the landscape – they’re not misplaced bunkers, but the island’s very own, unique bus shelters!

Brutalist Beauties:

Built in the 1980s, these bus shelters are prime examples of Brutalist architecture. Think bold geometric shapes and raw concrete – a stark contrast to the rolling hills and rugged coastlines of Lewis. While some might find them unconventional, they’ve become an undeniable symbol of the island’s unique character.
