Tolsta some 12 miles north east from Stornoway is a straggling village at the end of the road along the east coast Which Lord Leverhulme built when he owned Lewis, intending it to complete an island circuit at Port of Ness unfortunately he left the island before it was completed and nothing more was done.
There are several small settlements on the route and at the promontory of Tolsta Head there are ﬁne beaches and some prehistoric remains.
The area has been populated by ﬁsherlolk and crofters, most of whom are members of the very strict Free Presbyterian Church, the “Seeessionists".
From Tolsta there is a splendid panorama across 40 miles of sea to the mainland, from Cape Wrath at the northern extremity of Sutherland down to Ullapool in Ross and Cromarty, this would provide a truly impressive tour of Northern Lewis.
