Parkend (Scottish Gaelic: Ceann nam Buailtean) is a hamlet in the Point region of Lewis, although like Melbost, it is not a part of the Eye Peninsula. Many people erroneously believe it to be a suburb of Stornoway, on the island of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.[1] Parkend is within the parish of Stornoway.[2] Parkend is situated on the A866,[3] and the adjoining Holm Road allows access to the nearby Holm Village; the Parkend Industrial Estate[4] is adjacent to the small housing estate.[2][5]
