Talla na Mara, Isle of Harris facilities include a gallery, artists studios and craft workshops, a performance space for film, theatre and live music events, office spaces, a restaurant, campervan hook-ups and can cater for special events such as weddings.
Talla na Mara is an architect designed Community Enterprise Centre owned and managed by the residents of West Harris. Translated from Gaelic, Talla na Mara means the Centre by the sea. Overlooking the golden sands of Niseaboist beach and the Sound of Taransay, the Centre boasts one of the most photographed locations in the Outer Hebrides if not Scotland. Visitors to Talla na Mara will immediately see why we call ourselves "the venue with the view".
Open year round the Centre is home to a small community of Artists and Craftpeople, a light filled Gallery displaying work from visiting local artists or local interest exhibitions, a space for film, theatre and live music performances and a restaurant serving brunch and evening meals. The Centre will also host regular classes, workshops and pop-up shops and special events such as weddings, conferences and private parties.
We look forward to welcoming you to Talla na Mara.
