Local highlights

From our front door at Sith-Phort, you can access some of Harris’s most spectacular scenery. Climb Tòdun, the fin-shaped mountain that watches over Rhenigidale, or wander northwards round the points to discover unmatched views of Loch Seaforth and the Pairc area of Lewis.

Getting here

You can still arrive in Rhenigidale on foot along the Postman’s Path, which was the main land route to the village before the road came, and many people do. However, these days there are other possibilities too. Boats and planes and trains – as well as bicycles – can all form part of your journey to this beautiful and peaceful village on the edge of Loch Seaforth.

The Postman’s Path

In 1990, Rhenigidale became the last place in Britain to be connected by road after a 60-year campaign by local residents. Before the road, access was by boat or on foot along a steep and winding footpath tramped three times a week by local postman, Kenny Mackay.
