I need help figuring out the best way to get to Harris and Lewis. I will have car and mainly want to see the standing stones on Lewis. Where it the best port to take off from the mainland. How long does that ferry take ? Is it better to go to Skye and then travel over to Harris and Lewis? How long will it take to drive from port, either Skye or Tarbet to Standing Stones? Thanks for any help!!!

Here's the timetable to get to Lewis:


And to get to Harris:


It looks like you might be able to drive between the two places no problem.

Hi sitlelea,

Afraid I've only been to Skye, but I drove round that all the way, in a few hours, and it's bigger than the other islands, so I don't think the car journey will be too arduous - unless you're going right now as it's very snowy in Scotland at the moment!
