War memorials

For an island of about 20,000 inhabitants, Lewis has a surprising number of war memorials, sixteen. The largest is situated just outside Stornoway and consists of a tower, with a circle of 23 plaques below. They used to be in the tower, but that is severely affected by ingress of water, so they were placed outside.

  2. Fabulous set of photos. I love the memorial at Laxay - such a fantastic setting - it's a lovely spot just to stop and think for a while.
