Stornoway is the capital of the Outer Hebrides and is found on the east coast of Lewis. The name Stornoway (Scottish Gaelic-'Steornabhagh') derives from 'Sjornavagr', the Old Norse for 'steering bay'. The town has a population of around 9,000 and is the largest settlement in the Western Isles. Stornoway has a very colourful history, with many invasions - clan fights - Norse domination. many factors contribute to making the History of Stornoway so interesting - not least the Fishing Industry. The main street in Stornoway is called Cromwell Street as Cromwell's Parliamentary forces fought to take control of the town. Stornoway also played a great part in both World War 1 and the second World war. In the middle ages there was a lot of fighting. There were clans like the MacLeods who were much despised by the government in Edinburgh. King James VI attempted to remove their influence in 1597, but did not succeed. In the 1600s the castle of Stornoway was crushed by forces led by Oliver Cromwell. The town came under control of the MacKenzies.

In the first World War Stornoway and the Isle of Lewis gave a great deal more in percentage terms as more of its population were used and indeed lost in the conflict than anywhere else in the British Empire. During the First World War, thousands of islanders served in the forces, many losing their lives, including 208 naval reservists from the island who were returning home after the war when the Admiralty yacht HMY Iolaire, sank within sight of Stornoway harbour. Stornoway aerodrome was opened in 1937, but was taken under military control in 1941 during WWII. During the 2nd World War Stornoway was the site of an RAF base for anti-submarine planes and was also used as a refuelling base for aircraft ferried across the Atlantic. The Lews Castle was actually used as a naval hospital and accommodation for the air and ground crew of 700 Naval Air Squadron who operated the amphibious bi-planes from a slipway in the grounds. When the war ended Stornoway returned to its peacefully existence as a quiet town and the island perhaps once again was famous for its determination to keep the Sabbath.

During the period 1986-1993 the airport was used as a NATO Forward Operating Base for Air Defence aircraft protecting the fleet, being taken over by the military for six weeks a year. Stornoway Castle Originally Built 1300's - re built 1847 - 1857. The Stornoway castle ruins were finally demolished in 1882, however it was originally built around 1300 by the Nicolsons who were themselves of Norse origin. The castle now sits in a commanding position overlooking Stornoway and is currently vacant and indeed is on the Buildings at Risk Register. Lews Castle was built between 1847 and 1857 as a country house for Sir James Matheson who bought the island in 1844, In 1918 The Lewis estate including the castle was bought by Lord Leverhulme from the Matheson family. He gifted the castle to the people of Stornoway parish in 1923.

During World War II the Castle was used as accommodation for the 700 Naval Air Squadron, who operated a detachment of six Supermarine Walrus aircraft from the castle grounds. From the early 1950s until 1989 the Castle served as a Technical College and school - Lews Castle College.
