Lochs is an appropriately named parish on the eastern side of Lewis reached south west from Stornoway on the A859, about 2 miles down this road a branch leads past Loch Orisay to the charming villages of Grimshader, Ranish, and Crossbost, on its sea loch, back via Leurbost to the Harris road, past the ‘Soval bends" a side road leads to Keose, where a seaweed plant makes alginate and it is proudly claimed that some of this has been to the moon as fireproofing for the notepads used by the astronauts.

The road then runs along the deeply indented Loch Erisort, through Balallan, the longest village in Lewis and at the head of the loch a road runs east through magnificent mountain scenery, before it turns south may be seen Eilean Calum Chille. St Columba's Isle, at the mouth of Loch Erisort. with the ruins of an ancient church and a graveyard. The main road then continues through the villages of Airidhbhruaich, on an arm of Loch Seaforth (a sea loch) and Kintaravay, into Harris at Aline Lodge where there are superb views down the loch to the south east with the small peaks of Caiteshal (1,473 ft) and Toddun (1,731 ft) to left and right.
