Two Mistakes 

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to Leumadair Guesthouse...not going all the way, and not starting.

So many fail because they don't get started

They don't go !

They don't overcome inertia !

They don't begin !

Traveling to Lewis is easy with the choice of driving through some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland to get a ferry from either Skye, or Ullapool.  It isn't unusual to see whales and dolphins from the ferries, so keep an eye out!

The islands of Lewis and Harris are land bridged so you can drive from Tarbert in Harris to Leumadair Guest House it takes less than an hour, but why rush? From Stornoway Ferry Terminal the journey will take under half an hour, add an extra ten minutes to get from the airport.
