Creative Arts & Music


There are diverse and dynamic contemporary artist and music scenes throughout the Outer Hebrides and Lews Castle College are at the heart of that.  

The College have worked closely with the creative industries throughout the islands for decades and today our Art CoursesMusic Courses and Fashion courses work to celebrate our local culture heritage.   

An Lanntair in Stornoway and Taigh Chearsabhagh in North Uist, our two main island arts venues both emphasise Gaelic culture in their performing arts schedules as well as their exhibitions and installations.  

There is also the world famous Hebridean Celtic Festival, held each year in July. The College are proud sponsors of the festival and each year our Music alumni perform as part of this annual celebration of Celtic music.
