Garynahine (Scottish Gaelic: Gearraidh na h-aibhne) is a settlement on Lewis, in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Garynahine is situated at a T-junction where roads from Stornoway, Uig and the west side of Lewis all meet. The roads are the A858 and the B8011. Garynahine is within the parish of Uig.

Garynahine is the location of some outliers of the Callanish stones ('Ceann Hulavig'), an elliptical ring of five standing stones, 13.3 m x 9.5 m in diameter.

Nearby Garynahine Lodge is situated close to the shores of Loch Roag, which opens on to the Atlantic Ocean. It is part of the Garynahine Estate, extending to nearly 12,000 acres (49 km2) with approximately 40 freshwater trout lochs.

Located in the village of Garynahine, Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland, local weaver/designer John R. MacLean produces double width traditional Harris Tweed, recognised as one of the world's finest fabrics.
