The Machair Kitchen restaurant opened in March 2017 and is operated from Talla na Mara Community Enterprise Centre by Hotel Hebrides.
Talla na Mara Community Enterprise Centre is owned and managed by the residents of West Harris. Translated from Gaelic, Talla na Mara means the Centre by the sea. Overlooking the golden sands of Niseaboist beach and the Sound of Taransay, the Centre boasts one of the most photographed locations in the Outer Hebrides if not Scotland.
The Cuisine: Chefs Sam Barnes and Scott Steele have carefully considered every element of the menu, which contains a mixture of light bites and salads and melt in your mouth cakes. Provenance of ingredients and your whole dining experience is important to our team and we want to share these with you when you visit. We work closely with the West Harris Trust and cater for their events when required.
The Events: What truly separates The Machair Kitchen from any other establishment is the mixture of cuisine and culture. The venue hosts music events with award winning traditional/folk musicians, local artists/photographers, movie nights and more. Visit the Talla Na Mara Facebook page for their full schedule, and if you are looking to host an event in the community space, please contact the West Harris Trust on 01859550457.
