Port Stoth, Butt of Ness, Isle of Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.
Port Stoth known locally as Stoth is a sheltered inlet just south east of the Butt of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. It is the most northerly landing in the Outer Hebrides. A track leads down to a slipway which runs across the sandy beach.
Port Stoth is about four hundred yards from the Butt of Lewis lighthouse, and all the materials for the construction of the lighthouse (between 1859 and 1862) were brought by ship and landed in Port Stoth, due to lack of road infrastructure. The port continued to play an important role in bringing supplies to the lighthouse until about 1960. Supplies and fuel were brought in small cargo vessels when the weather allowed, and were unloaded in Port Stoth by crane. The concrete base still remains, as does a brick storage building.
