A beautiful new collection of paintings by Dave Gunning surround this. Dave Gunning worked on the Isle of Lewis and Harris thirty years ago. Drawings of the stone circles were purchased by the Queen’s bankers and Devizes Museum.

A return visit to Callanesh earlier this year has inspired his latest works. Also currently on display are work by, Jenny Gunning, Dave Gunning, Catherine Downes, Liz Simmons and Lizzy Gunning.
