Situated on the Isle of Lewis in the north of the United Kingdom, Stornoway is one of the smallest towns in the country. The population of the town, which is located on the territory of Scotland, is about 12 thousand people. Stornoway, one of the major industrial ports of the region, is also home to one of the most developed harbours in the area.
The trading vessels carrying out commercial activities around the isle use Stornoway Harbour intensively. With the effect of all these features, the town has become an important center of attraction from past to present and the people in the town usually speak English with Scottish accent.
Temperate oceanic climate is influential in Stornoway and its surroundings. However, temperatures do not increase much throughout the year in the town.
