The main island sin this northernmost location have two very separate regions, Lewis and Harris. Harris, of course is the eponymous producer of the famous tweed, which can only be called as such, as long as it is produced right here. It can also lay claim to the scenery being thought as most representative of anywhere in Scotland. Lewis is the working centre of island life, Stornaway being a busy and prosperous fishing port. The completely uninhabited island of St. Kilda, a World Heritage Site, exerts a powerful attraction, although it can only be visited by permission of the National Trust for Scotland - and if the sea-state and weather permits!
