Welcome to E-sgire, the new website from Comhairle nan Eilean Siar that will make it easier for you to find out what's going on in your community. By looking at the map above, you can find out about what we're doing in your area. More detailed information about ward divisions can be found here.


A fresh perspective


Given the geographical range of our work, and the many different islands and communities that we're responsible for, we think that it is vital to connect with people at a local level. Through this easy to use website, we can get the most relevant information to your area, in a clear and responsive way.

Using this site


When you arrive on this site, you can register to comment and share information on local matters. You can also set a filter for the whole site, meaning that every time you log on, you'll only see the information about the council ward you live in.


This information consists of events and news about the Comhairle's work, in addition to more detailed links about the transport, leisure, education and care facilties that we provide across the islands. On the ward pages, you can also find out more about your elected representatives and the work of community councils.


A Lewis Association of Community Councils has now been formed. The Chair is Alex John Murray, the Secretary is Jacqueline Ferguson, and contact e-mail is:


We're also keen to listen to your views about local government in the Western Isles. The opinion section will seek views at local and islands' wide level on various aspects of our policies and procedures.


We want you to know how we're doing in terms of meeting the targets that we set ourselves as an organisation. This information can be accessed in the 'Performance' section.
