The beach at the rather extravagantly-named, Port Stoth, has obvious appeal and the place itself served as a loading bay for the Butt of Lewis Lighthouse. It was a starting point for a blogged journey along the west coast of Lewis in a series, Stravaiging Around Scotland. The word 'stravaig' comes from Medieval Latin and has currency in Scotland, the North of England and Ireland where it means to wander, saunter or stroll. Do follow in its steps.
