How to get Here

Located in Scotland in the tiny Hebridean village of Mangersta on the west coast of the Isle of Lewis we are literally on the North Atlantic Edge of Europe. Part of the beautiful archipelago which forms the Outer Hebrides.

Search HS2 9EY for maps and directions to our stunning location near the white sands of Traigh Mhangurstaigh and the rugged sea cliffs which form the Mangersta Headland.

Our luxury camping site is open all year. The Cabins and Shepherd's Huts are fully insulated and heated to ensure a comfy camping experience in any weather.

The gallery is open most days but it is advisable to check opening times by phone or e-mail prior to travelling long distances to our remote location. The surrounding landscape is designated as a National Scenic Area and is well worth a visit. There are also several cafes, a community shop and a local heritage museum in neighbouring villages.

The journey here by boat or plane from the Scottish mainland can be an exciting adventure in itself with spectacular aerial views of the Highlands and Islands in clear weather and opportunities for wildlife watching from the Calmac ferries.
