About us

Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre is a hub for people to meet, share ideas, learn new skills and experience exhibitions and events that are imaginative and stimulating.

Our island’s location and environment are fundamentally important to the work we do. The place, the Gaelic language, and its culture and heritage are an integral element of our identity.

We present regular visual art, moving image and heritage exhibitions, as well as live music events, art classes for children and adults, writers groups and a community-focused education & outreach programme.

Located in Lochmaddy, the main port of entry to North Uist, Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum & Arts Centre is located on the shoreline of a marine Special Site of Scientific Interest (SSSI).
