Welcome to Reothart nan Ealain, a Gaelic visual arts hub based in Lochcroistean, Uig, Isle of Lewis

We opened our doors to classes and visitors in 2022, please subscribe to our mailing list to be kept up to date with new courses as they are added to our programme.



Reothart nan Ealain means Springtide of the Arts in Scottish Gaelic.

Reothart nan Ealain is a new Gaelic visual arts hub in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. We are the only arts centre in the world with a primary focus on Gaelic visual arts.

Based out of the old school in Lochcroistean, Uig on the isle of Lewis we offer an inviting, relaxing and creative space to visit.

Through our shop and programme of workshops, residential courses, walks, talks and adventures we aim to engage visitors with a Gaelic 'way of seeing', offering a deeper cultural insight into our place within the landscapes that surround us.

Whether you're new to making art or to Gaelic culture, we're here for you!
