Stornoway, what a great place to slow down and rest up. It's on the Isle of Lewis in the outer Hebrides of Scotland and it's landscape is very dramatic and encompasses all of what you'd expect from Scotland. I'll admit that I haven't done a lot here, in fact there is not much to do in Stornoway itself, but, that was the point of coming here, to …
