The History and Culture

Scotland with Sabbath observance, the Gaelic language and peat cutting retaining more importance than elsewhere.
The standing stones at Callanish are probably the most famous historical attraction on the island.
A visitor centre with café and shops is located at the site. Callanish is approximately 40 minutes drive from Comraich.
