More than a view

Talla na Mara is an arts and entertainment centre on the Isle of Harris, owned and operated on behalf of the West Harris community, 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.

Talla na Mara provides a versatile space, as an exhibition gallery, theater and music area, destination wedding venue and above all a community hall.

Translated from Gaelic, Talla na Mara means the Centre by the sea.

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.
