Isle fo Lewis offers one of the most consistent surf spots in Europe. It's awesome when it fires. Best time of year is from October to May. Not for the faint hearted.

john.. youre an idiot. God forbid that Lewis should attract the odd surf tourist now and again. Its hardly pipeline mate... chill out, share the ocean and stop being such a cliche.

Maybe it's cold and maybe it's drab... but good surf is good surf, no matter what you choose to believe about the locals.
Contrary to your narrow minded generalisations Lewis is in fact a beautiful place. The surfers there would be happy to meet you in the line-up... they have a sharp wit, a generous warmth and they also know how to spell.
I suggest you stick to being a tosser, and reconsider your career as a travel writer.
