My fiance and I are eloping to the Isle of Lewis in July and I'm wondering about the weather, will the Aurora Borealis be visible during the summer, where are good spots for wedding photos (in addition to the Callanish Stones), what are some good local places to eat in Stornoway (and all over the Isle)?
Also, we'll be getting his kilt in his ancestral tartan and I'm curious if that will be a simple process - do you have to special order the tartan since there are so many? Is a fitting an ordeal or is it mostly easy to shop for one - can we secure one in one day? Our time frame is only so long so I want to be able to get it easily before the ceremony.
We are hoping to spend time in Edinburgh and Inverness (Loch Ness day trip) and trying to find time to tour some of his favorite distilleries as well.
Any good restaurants and tours you can suggest will be greatly appreciated! We can't wait!
