Welcome to the Calanais Visitor Centre web site!

Callanish Visitor CentreThe west coast of Lewis, the most northerly island in the Outer Hebrides, is rich in prehistoric remains, and no visitor to the island need ever lack for an interesting place to visit or something fascinating to see.

The magnificent Standing Stones of Callanish (or Calanais, which is the Gaelic version) are famous worldwide. No matter what the weather is like and however many visitors are present, these ancient stones have an enigmatic, magical quality that never fails to move.

Whatever inspired their construction, all agree that the experience of visiting the Standing Stones of Calanais is not one to be missed.
