Transport : getting to Lewis, and seeing the island
Travel by car or caravan: Lewis is a paradise for disabled motorists from the mainland, with many miles of quiet roads through idyllic countryside, and peaceful campsites. This guidance to disabled motorists is helpful. Be aware: petrol is very expensive on Lewis!
If you let them know when you book, Calmac ferries will arrange for your vehicle to be parked on board by a lift for easy access to the passenger decks. Calmac offers reduced fares to disabled motorists, but you must check their rules first. If you think you will need help either at the port or on the ferry itself, ask Calmac first!
Disabled drivers' motoring organisations can also be helpful.
Ferries: there are lifts and toilets for people with disabilities on the Calmac ferries. Some staff have limited training in BSL (sign language). The modern Stornoway ferry terminal has level access with a w/c toilet and the major ones at Ullapool, Tarbert, Mallaig and Uig also have w/c accessible toilets for people with disabilities. However, induction loops are not fitted as standard. This general advice to ferry passengers with a disability is helpful.
