There is also a wide selection of luxury accommodation on the upper castle floors; to host the largest of wedding parties; and the popular Storehouse Café can offer a sumptuous breakfast the morning after; for reminiscing over the evening’s festivities.

The main public rooms on the ground floor of Lews Castle have been restored to their Gothic Revival glory; including ornate plaster ceilings and a fabulous 19th century wall mural in the Morning Room. The exception is the spectacular Adam style ballroom which Lord Levenhulme extended and remodelled in the 1920s and which has been restored to that style.

Dining Room

Steeped in incredibly ornate wooden panelling, and swathed in a regal colour palette of rich reds and blues, the Dining Room in Lews Castle is an impressive setting for a wedding celebration or corporate event. Featuring floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the castle grounds, and seating up to 88 delegates, this room offers a unique setting for your next event.


With a pretty yellow décor, the Library is ideal for smaller wedding breakfasts. Featuring an original fireplace and delicate chandelier, this beautifully finished room is perfect for intimate gatherings and can accommodate up to 60 guests.

Morning Room

The key feature of this final ground floor room is the incredibly detailed botanical murals that perfectly frame the ornately carved fireplace. Hidden beneath years of wallpaper, and now perfectly restored from their original Victorian splendour, these delicate artistic works make the room utterly romantic, and are perfectly complemented by the far-reaching views of Stornoway harbour. For private events the Morning Room can seat up to 34 guests.

Whisky Bar

The Bar in Lews Castle recreates the experience of an old-fashioned whisky bar. Rich materials such as marble, walnut and brass for the bar joinery, are used alongside velvet upholstery to give a sense of grandeur to the space. The chosen lighting above the bar reflected the traditional cut glass whisky glasses, and added a sense of drama to the design.
