Sandwick Cemetery

Sandwick cemetery, located just east of the town of Stornoway has two parts, the Old Cemetery (near Lower Sandwick) and the modern part, which stretches between the A866 road to the airport and the seashore. War graves are located in BOTH cemeteries, which are adjoining.

The cemetery is easily accessible by vehicle from the main road (you can drive into the graveyard itself from the point marked on the map), and there is a good bus service along the same road. On foot, Sandwick cemetery can be approached along the shore from the Battery and Newton areas of Stornoway. The Old Cemetery is located above the shores of Sandwick Bay.
