The town's population is around 9,000, making it the largest town in the Western Isles (with a third of the population) and the third largest town in the Scottish Highlands after Fort William. The civil parish of Stornoway, including various nearby villages, has a population of approximately 12,000. Stornoway is an important port and the major town and administrative centre of the Outer Hebrides. It is home to Comhairle nan Eilean Siar (the Western Isles Council) and a variety of educational, sporting and media establishments. Observance of the Christian Sabbath (Sunday), had long been a unique aspect of the island's culture. Recent changes mean that Sunday is now less different from the other Western Isles or the mainland of Scotland.
