There are post-war prefabs as far as Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. Not that The Hebrides were bombed by the Germans but there was a serious housing shortage there in 1946. Homeless people had even started squatting the castle. I found out about the Isle of Lewis prefabs reading about the different types of post-war prefabs. I instantly thought I have to go and see them. A few years ago, I went on Lewis and Harris for the first time and fell in love with the place. I was stunned by its beauty, its dramatic landscapes and seascapes, the sea, the ocean, the space, the wind which I am sure can make you crazy...
So, when I discovered the was an 'Isle of Lewis' prefab type, I had such a good excuse to jump on a flight to Glasgow then Stornoway.
