Back and North Tolsta
This area lies along the B895 to the north east of Stornoway, along the coast.
The beaches are the main feature in this area, with some of the finest on Lewis. Traigh Mhor Beach lying towards the end of the road is of particular note.
The Bridge to Nowhere,
or Garry Bridge was constructed by Lord Leverhulme, in an attempt to build a road link between the end of the road and Port of Ness. The road was never finished, hence the bridge gets its name. However, the route along the coast from Bridge to knowhere has now been made into a very scenic walk called the ‘Western Isles Walk’.
Distance: 16km /10 miles (about 6 hours). Follow the green and yellow posts marking the easiest route over moorland terrain which can be boggy in places.
