Taigh Chearsabhagh offers more than most museums and arts centres.

With a gift shop, café and busy post office the building offers core community services in addition to a generous variety of creative programming.


Our shop offers an excellent mix of quality books, gifts, cards, jewellery, crafts and textile accessories. Popular items include local hand knitted ‘bobban’ socks and Harris Tweed handbags. A delicious range of fragrant soaps and candles will tempt the romantic soul and a wide selection of decorative ceramics and glassware will satisfy those seeking a unique gift for friends or family.

Younger shoppers will be thrilled to see a huge range of toys and picture books on the shelves too. There is something for everybody in the Shop. The stock is changing constantly with new seasonal lines and products introduced regularly.


The Café is located at the heart of the building and offers uninterrupted views across the Lochmaddy lagoons towards the distant hills of the Isle of Harris. The boardwalk seating area is accessed from the Café and is an unbeatable vantage point for leisurely al fresco lunches or even a quick tea break.

Freshly made soups, sandwiches, tasty toasties and homebaking are all featured on the menu along with a wide range of speciality teas, soft drinks and confectionary to suit all tastes.
