“I see this very much a project in progress and I hope to work backwards and try and piece together the history of the wall (and the harbour it created).”

If anyone has any knowledge of, anecdotes about or pictures of the old harbour in Inveralligin, Steve would love to hear from you – please send an email to

Steve’s website can be found at

You can read more about Steve and his project in an interview published in the

Artist Studio at the Centre


Local artist Lisa O'Brien StudioLisa O’Brien is currently running her studio from the Loch Torridon Community Centre. Visitors are welcome to look around and see her work in progress.

Lisa grew up in Sheffield and is now based on the West Coast of Scotland. She has always been open to working with various media and her practice over the years has encompassed performance, composition, video, sound, installation and more recently drawing and painting. She uses the media she finds most appropriate to the situation and the ideas she is exploring.  Her work has been influenced by living in North West Scotland for the last 10 years and is often linked to the environment and weather conditions.

At the Centre, Lisa is exhibiting some of her drawing, painting and prints that she has worked on over the last couple of years. There are two sides to her work, one being more commercial and encompassing commissions, prints and cards focused on the local landscape and you can see this work in the studio. Alongside this she has continued to develop images using video stills, sound and exploring the idea of memory.

In August she will be taking part in “Remote Performances” at Outlandia - an artist’s field station in Glen Nevis.  Lisa will make field recordings of perceived silence in the rural setting and she will continue her exploration of developing a graphic notation to record nothingness, or what we think of as silence.

You can find out more about Lisa and her work from her website

Closed Sunday

Entry to the exhibition is free.

Organisers Les and Sheila Bates, have this message about the exhibition,

“It can be a challenge to title an exhibition that holds appeal to a wide range of artists and makers. However, on this occasion the theme came about through linking up with the Mountain and Sea Festival in Torridon 3rd -13th October.  We hope you and festival visitors find the time to call in to the exhibition. The Gallery endeavours to maintain a uniquely local representation of work with new interpretations of our landscape. The quality of artists work, some art school trained and some new to the centre for the exhibition continues to inspire. Call in and share the inspiration.”
