Lewis War Memorial

This memorial consists of a tower, erected on a hilltop on the northern outskirts of Stornoway. The memorial plaques were removed from the interior of the tower due to the effects of water ingress, which made the tower unsafe to enter. They are now mounted on blocks of Lewisian gneiss, arranged in a part circle outside and below the tower.

The memorial itself can only be approached on foot, either from Stewart Avenue (off Macaulay Road, the A857 to Barabhas / Port Nis) or Memorial Avenue (signposted from the A859 to Tairbeart). There is limited streetparking in either street.

The memorial is within walking distance of Stornoway town entre, with an incline on the final approach. Bus services W1 (Ness), W2 (Shawbost, Carloway), W5 (Back, Tolsta), W8 (Ranish) and W10 (Tarbert) all pass close by, with the hill remaining to be walked up.
