Venture to the Isle of Lewis for an in-depth look at the history and culture of this unique Scottish region. You'll first arrive at the stunning Lews Castle. Built by Sir James Matheson, who had purchased the entire island thanks to his massive fortune earned in the Chinese opium trade, the castle evokes the grandeur, grace, and spirit of a bygone era. Tour the extensive grounds, with plenty of time for photo opportunities, before enjoying an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the castle's interior. Enjoy tea or coffee as well as a selection of tray bakes–tasty, sweet treats traditionally baked in trays. Just next door, take a tour of the Nan Eiliean Museum, which is dedicated to telling the unique history of the region through various exhibitions and displays of objects dating from early history to the modern era.
