Bays Blackhouse is located on the quieter east side of the Isle of Harris close to Loch Stocinis…
A small art gallery run by owner-artist Willie Fulton can be found in a beautiful setting in the corner of the bay in Drinishader. The gallery in a traditional Hebridean dwelling, has been converted to provide ground floor exhibition space for the artist's work. Inspired by his surroundings, Willie's art is influenced by what lies outside his own studio door and the unique Harris landscape.

About the area
Discover Western Isles
The islands lying to the west of Scotland’s north coast fall into two groups – the Inner and Outer Hebrides.
The islands of the Inner Hebrides, each with its own character and community life, fall into distinct groups and are by far the most visited. Mull, second only to Skye in size, is characterised by mountains and moorland with pockets of more pastoral landscape, small towns, settlements and castles to visit. It provides access to holy Iona and the drama of Staffa and Fingal’s Cave. The low-lying islands of Coll, Tiree, Colonsay and Oronsay lie west of Mull, windswept and remote. To the south lie Islay and Jura, one producing some of Scotland’s finest whiskies, the other home to many more red deer than people.
Lying beyond Skye, the Outer Hebrides are a destination in their own right. They too fall into natural island groups. To the north lie Lewis and Harris, geographically one island, with Lewis, the most densely populated region of the Outer Hebrides, and Harris far more mountainous. From its southern tip, ferries cross to North Uist, Benbecula, South Uist and Eriskay, all linked by causeways. South again, tiny Barra marks the end of the inhabited islands.
