The first thing you notice are the photographs lining the room, all printed on canvas and all great quality. The owner is a talented photographer. They make proper coffee here, and all the cakes are home made. The lemon drizzle cake was very nice and...More

Absolutely wonderful to meet Edwin Rendall and view his gallery of work, whilst enjoying coffee & cake - perfect combo! Also fascinating reading the story of how the wooden structure inside the gallery came to be there (I won't spoil the surprise). A 'must-visit' place...More

The only problem was choosing which cake to have. They all looked wonderful, and the two we chose were excellent. The surroundings are gorgeous - superb pictures of Westray in a light and airy gallery. Not to be missed

We are regular visitors to Orkney and this gallery and coffee shop never fails to impress. The photographs of the island are beautiful and vibrant and you can collapse in a comfy seat with an excellent cappuccino and home made cake.

Family run art gallery located on the picturesque island of Westray. A wide variety of products are available, including photography, original art, prints, handmade cards, creatively designed gifts and souvenirs. Most of which are designed and produced on the premises. A unique feature in the gallery is a deck cabin from a 19th century shipwreck. We look forward to welcoming you.
