Dancing Light Gallery, Whitmuir, Lamancha, West Linton, Scottish Borders, EH46 7BB

    Dancing Light Gallery is an exciting rural art gallery which forms part of a beautiful new timber-framed building, insulated with sheep's wool and powered by renewable energy.

    This gallery exhibits and sells original work by local and nationally renowned contemporary artists, including paintings, sculpture, glass, ceramics, and textiles.

    The Dancing Light Gallery boasts a programme of changing exhibitions throughout the year where you can find landscape, wildlife and figurative paintings by contemporary artists as well as handmade original prints and photographs.

    You can also admire beautiful sculpture, glass, wood and ceramics and a constantly changing selection of handmade jewellery is on show in silver, gold and other media.

    The textile work ranges from scarves to handbags, again handmade and original, using some of the finest Scottish wools and fabrics.

    All of the work on show is truly unique.

    Throughout the year a programme of artist talks, workshops and painting classes will run for both adults and children. For more details, please visit the Dancing Light Gallery website.

    The Dancing Light Gallery is located alongside Whitmuir the Organic Place, where there is a wonderful licensed café serving a choice of vegetarian, meat and fish dishes with as much of the produce as possible coming straight from the farm.

    Visit the farm shop (open seven days a week) which supplies its own fresh meat, vegetables and eggs and stocks an extensive range of organic produce and ethical gifts.

    There is a safe play area for children and during the summer there are guided walks around the farm where you can also buy seeds, plants and garden supplies, making it an ideal destination for a visit with friends or family.
