Welcome to Lewis Off-Road Discovery!   We can offer you sightseeing tours around Ness at the north of the beautiful Isle of Lewis, visiting cultural and historical sites with a Land Rover Discovery, all of them with an off-road theme that cannot be tasted with a ordinary bus, car or taxi.  Best of all, you will be in total comfort in the Discovery, and can be taken by a Gaelic-speaking guide to explain the sights - you will be more than a tourist, and really discover our islands!!

Tours are available daily from Monday to Saturday - please book at least one day in advance.  We offer three basic types of tour, all with fixed prices which can be shared by up to four people:


bulletDelivery to the starting point of the coastal walk from Tolsta across the moor to Ness, at 50 per day, crossing Lord Leverhulme's 'Bridge to Nowhere' with the Land Rover Discovery.  We will then pick you up south of Skigersta and take you back to your hotel.  This option saves you the trouble of having to arrange cars at either end of this exacting trek, increases your safety because we will be awaiting your arrival, and takes away the tedious walking over rough tracks at either end of the tranquil moor walk.  You will enjoy your day more!  We can also supply a guide during the walk for an additional 25 per day.
