This is a tall brick lighthouse overlooking a lot of craggy rocks with, if you are lucky as we were with the weather, lots of blue sea & white breakers. Seabirds sitting on their nests were not that exciting to look at. The rabbit-mown turf...More

Just walk 50 yards straight ahead after parking the car to look out over the sheltered cove below, if it's a calm day in particular it doesn't take look for the cute puppy dog faces of the Atlantic Seals to peer upwards. Who can resist...More

So there is no visitors centre, no cafe and you can't go in the lighthouse but it has spectacular views of the waves crashing against the rocks below and you can say you have been to the most northern point of the Outer Hebrides.

Great cliff walks and rock hoping for the adventurous. Sat and watched dolphins leaping out and splashing down. Kids loved it.

Go for the views of the ocean and the birds nesting on the nearby rocks. There is no public access to the lighthouse. Excellent photo opportunities.

The lighthouse is - obviously - in a prominent position and makes visitors realise that they are, literally, on the edge of the world. The wildlife is also well worth looking for and the whole experience memorable.

We travelled here on a full-size coach so possibly difficult to turn around if a lot of vehicles already there and a narrow road to get to it, with occasional passing places. However, definitely worth it for the view. The lighthouse is closed, no chance...More

Wasn't the best day but the views were still amazing. I would definitely recommend anyone travelling to Lewis to visit the lighthouse. Nice for a walk on a dry day too.

The lighthouse is quite nice and interesting due to being of unusual red brick, but the best part is the coastal walk from there. We did the whole 11km loop but the best part is the start, so if you head uphill from the lighthouse...More

We were at the Butt of Lewis on a very calm day, so we had the opportunity to walk around and see the beauties of the nature. Spectacularly kept treasure from the Grandfather of a famous writer.
