na Dorsan

Comunn Eachdraidh Nis is proud to announce the launch of a new exhibition on the 24th April 2024.

The exhibition entitled ‘na Dorsan’ charts the history of Galson from prehistory to community buyout in 2007. It will showcase Iron Age and Viking artefacts discovered on the Galson coastline - on loan from National Museums Scotland and Museum nan Eilean, Stornoway.

The launch of ‘na Dorsan’ is the first in a series of events to commemorate the centenary of the re-settling of Galson in 1924. The events are the result of a collaboration with Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn, Airidhantuim Community Council, Galson Grazings Committee, National Museums of Scotland, and Museum nan Eilean. This will culminate in the unveiling, by Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn, of a stone monument named ‘na Dorsan’ in the Autumn of 2024.

The exhibition will be opened by Agnes Rennie, Chairperson of Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn.

The main speaker at the launch event will be Dr Fraser Hunter, Principal Curator of Prehistoric and Roman Archaeology at National Museums Scotland. His talk is entitled:

Galson before History

People have settled around Galson for thousands of years. Clues to the area’s prehistory survive in the form of objects found in excavations or as chance discoveries. These will be used to weave a story from the first farmers in the area, some 6000 years ago, through to the area’s contacts with the Viking world.

Dr Hunter, who is responsible for the Iron Age and Roman collections at National Museums Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to collaborate with Comunn Eachdraidh Nis on this display to reveal a fascinating selection of finds from Galson’s deep past. These objects help us to understand how people have lived and thrived in this area for thousands of years. It’s been a real voyage of discovery for us in selecting material for display, and we hope visitors to the exhibition will find it equally engrossing.”


We are grateful to our funders: The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn for supporting this project and to National Museums Scotland and Museum nan Eilean for agreeing to loan these beautiful artefacts to Comunn Eachdraidh Nis.

To book a place at the launch event, call CEN on 01851 810377 or e-mail office@cenonline.org Numbers are limited so early booking is recommended.

The exhibition will run until March 2025.

As the first historical society to be set up in the Outer Hebrides (in 1977), it now has an established reputation for delivering innovate projects for local people and for visitors. It also serves as a Gaelic ‘hub’ within the community and the language is spoken every day by staff and people visiting the facilities.

An Tilleadh (The Return)

This event is at attendance capacity

Comunn Eachdraidh Nis (CEN) is pleased to announce the launch of a special exhibition on the 18th April 2023. Following a year of planning between CEN and The National Museum of Scotland, locally discovered Bronze Age finds will be returning to Ness. In 1910, an eclectic hoard of objects was recovered while peat digging near Adabrock.

This hoard dates to the Late Bronze Age (c.1000-800 BC). It contains bronze axeheads, a spearhead, three razors and other tools, as well as fragments of a decorated vessel, two whetstones and rare beads of glass, amber and gold. It is one of the most diverse hoards in Britain.

By the Fireside: Mac an t-Srònaich

On the 29th September, we spent a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon on the Cuidhsiadar sheilings hearing the story of Mac an t-Srònaich. This was as part of our events to mark VisitScotland's Year of Stories 2022.

Our thanks once again to Iain Gordon Macdonald and Ryno Morrison for their time and huge thanks to Mary and John for allowing us to use their sheiling.

A great night by the fireside

We had a fantastic start to our series of events 'Ri Tac an Teine' (By the Fireside) to mark the Year of Stories 2022. Iain Gordon Macdonald and Ryno Morrison entertained a group of brave souls with eerie tales from North Lewis. From bodach Loch Mharabhat to caileach an Druim Fhraoich, we suspect some lights were definitely left switched on that night....

Dealbh Diciadain: An Eva

Every Wednesday, we will share a photograph from our archive looking back on familiar faces and our changing community. This week shows some village boys sitting on part of the wreckage of the 'Eva' In November 1940, a Norwegian cargo Ship ‘The Eva’ was on her way from Canada to Essex with a cargo of timber. She lost the convoy but made her own way across the Atlantic and came ashore on Tràigh Chumhail part of which is on Cross and Swainbost beach, after being torpedoed by a German U boat off St Kilda. The crew abandoned ship and came ashore in Barra. She was badly holed and weeks later was washed ashore. The wood was carted away by ‘officials’ but a lot of it was taken by locals in the dead of night. Seemingly lorries came from as far away as Bragar to get part of the spoil.

Inspiring Scotland’s Island Communities grant

The directors, staff and volunteers at Comunn Eachdraidh Nis are delighted to have been awarded a grant from Inspiring Scotland’s Island Communities Fund. The grant of £56,411.75 will enable us to install an air source heat pump and underfloor heating in the café and meeting space, currently fitted with electric heaters which are costly to run. Inefficient windows will be replaced and additional loft insulation fitted to make the building as energy efficient as possible.

This renewables project is an integral part of the wider redevelopment of the centre. All other areas of the building have been redeveloped and are now heated by renewable heating sources. This remaining section of the building has been identified as the cause of excessive electricity costs and requires urgent upgrading. Loss of income during the pandemic has depleted the charity’s financial reserves, highlighting the urgent need to reduce running costs in order to secure the long-term future of the organisation and the jobs and community it supports.
Since relocating in 2011, the services delivered by CEN have expanded to accommodate the needs of the community. It has developed into a dynamic social enterprise, providing vital services to socially isolated groups and providing much needed employment in the area.

CEN contributes towards the aspirations within Urras Oighreachd Ghabhsainn’s 2017-37 Strategic Plan for the Galson Estate, impacting on the following priorities: Developing Skills; Improving Health; Relieving Poverty; Engaging citizens to become more active in the community; Promoting and protecting the rich culture and heritage of the area; Developing, revitalising and growing industry sectors.

This work will commence in January 2021 so the café will be closed to the public throughout the months of January and February 2021.

New exhibition: Eadar Talamh is Tìr

Màiri NicGillìosa is a Gaelic visual artist. In Màiri's arts practice, Gàidhlig forms a key part of the aperture through which she experiences the world.

Sandra Kennedy is an artist who explores connection to landscape. All senses are active in absorbing the surface sensations of place and detail.

Their work is a response to their different areas of Lewis - West and East side. Their shared source has been their love for their villages, kinships to their habitats. Patterns of crofts and echoes of their landscapes are explored through mixed media drawings, sculpture and painting.

Eadar Talamh is Tìr is open Monday to Friday 10am - 4.30pm until the New Year.
