At the Butt of Lewis, the northern end of the island, a hole in the rock is evidence of a local story.

Place names of the islands are largely Norse in origin. For around three centuries the islands were owned by Scandinavia. When the Vikings finally had to leave they were reluctant to go, so they hatched a plan, which involved all the maidens of the islands volunteering their tresses. These were turned into the strongest rope and attached to the galleys to pull the Western Isles home with them to Norway. A hole in the rock at the Butt of Lewis was allegedly cut to attach the rope. Barra, Eriskay and all the southern islands are the bits that broke off under the strain of the tow.

The Outer Hebrides, when seen from above, have the shape of a ship.
