Stornoway Town Hall

Stornoway Town Hall was built in 1905 to a design by John Robertson of Inverness. It was built from local red sandstone and the windows were trimmed with a cream dressing stone. The local library was housed in the Town Hall from 1906 when Andrew Carnegie contributed £3000 towards the reading room.

The Town Hall was closed for refurbishment in 1979 and the library moved to new premises. The Town Hall now houses the Registry Office for births, marriages and deaths. It also serves as a venue for music concerts.

The building overlooks the harbour
