Having read a fair bit about this tragedy, we had to visit. It was a windy day in June, and it didn't bear thinking about what it must have been like in a midwinter storm. And what was most appalling of all was to realise just how incredibly close to shore the Iolaire was when it ran onto the rocks. To have survived four years of war, only to die within yards of your home is just unimaginable - both for the men who perished and the families who were awaiting their arrival with such joy and anticipation. A sombre but essential visit.

The bleak weather seemed somehow fitting for our visit to this memorial to a horrific tragedy which unfolded so close (in space and time) to home, for hundreds of men who had already been through the horrors of war. The impact on the affected families - all across the islands - can barely be imagined. This memorial is a fitting tribute.

This memorial overlooks a spot out in the ocean that saw a tragedy after WW1 which affected most Island families. When you look out at the spot in the sea where a ship capsized so close to land and realize how many lives were lost, the tragedy still moves you. I felt that the simplicity of the memorial is appropriate for the event it marks.

Took my mum to see this memorial, it was a lovely walk but a bit of a trek for her as shes not good on her legs and is 84, but once we made it to the bench area it is a stunningly beautiful spot for a memorial. Beautiful and serene.

Highly recommend a visit out here. It is worth the walk. Fitting monument to those who lost their lives. Recommend reading John Macleod's book "When I Heard The Bell". This will give you a great context, helps you fully appreciate what happened and the impact it had.

We were visiting this area with a local who felt we might be moved by the evebts of this place. He was right. The fact that these good men lost their lives so close to home is heartbreaking. The memorial is most appropriate and the new pathway makes it easily accessible.

We made the brief detour here on the way to Stornoway airport, not far but well worth the easy walk from the car park area.
The story brought tears to my eyes. As you stand there, read the inscriptions, look out to sea and imagine what the men had already endured, they were so near home yet so many lost their lives so close to the shore.
The work that had been completed here for the centenary of this disaster is brilliant, new tarmac walkway, lots of information boards along the way. The new memorial states all the names of the people who lost their lives, it really tugs at the heartstrings.

We were actually passing by and I noticed the sign. I had heard about the ceremony earlier this year when Chris Walks the UK visited and attended the memorial along with Prince Charles and other dignitaries and people involved. This memorial is beautiful, so well thought out, I was very moved by the whole experience and am so glad we decided to pay a visit. I will admit to shedding a few tears. Would recommend a visit to Iolare Memorial - simply beautiful with stunning views.

I'm former Royal Navy, but I'd never heard of this terrible, terrible disaster until I was there. It affected the whole island for generations, so I felt compelled to pay my respects. You cannot go to Lewis and Harris and not hear of or feel an effect of the loss of the Iolaire.

In it's centenary year since the disaster the memorial is an interesting and poignant place to visit. We were also lucky enough to be in Stornoway while the exhibition about the disaster is on in the Town Hall. What a tremendous amount of work has been put in to this exhibition and gives so many personal accounts from families of those affected by the loss of so many of the men coming home on leave. An absolute must to visit.
