Lewis War Memorial

Lewis | Stornoway | Monument | ★★

[Lewis War Memorial]

Spend any time around Stornoway and you'll soon notice a large monument on a hill north of the town. This 85-foot stone tower is the Lewis War Memorial, completed in 1924 in the Scots Baronial style to commemorate fallen soldiers from World War I. Visitors to the monument used to be able to climb to the top, but in recent decades you have to be content with the view from the base: the panorama over this part of the island is excellent even from ground level.
