SEVEN reasons to love Kilmorack

1  AAA+ artists

The heart of any good gallery is the artists it shows. At Kilmorack Gallery we only show work by carefully selected artists who push the boundaries of art.

There are always interesting things to see. 


2  Where else can you see sculpture?


 Kilmorack Gallery represents more sculptors than any other Scottish gallery. Helen Denerley, Lotte Glob and Gerald Laing have all had solo exhibitions with us. Our spectacular interior (an 18th rural century church) gives 3d the space and light it deserves. 

Over the summer of 2015 we have work by Laurence Broderick, Eoghan Bridge, Lotte Glob, Steve Dilworth and Gerald Laing, 



3  Discover our vaults upstairs


Kilmorack Gallery always has an exhibition running. This is normally a two or three person or solo show, but if you are interested in something else; maybe by an artist not part of the current show, there is more to see. We have a vault upstairs that can normally be perused and other works in storage too. Do you want to know more about what is here? Then our website is always up-to-date with that can be viewed. 



4 The current show

Our exhibitions are always outstanding so if you are interested in Scottish art you will not be disappointed if you just call by. Expect to see work not normally found in private galleries. We have a big space so we often have large and spectacular seminal works. 

5  What other gallery has such a comprehensive website?

Kilmorack Gallery's website has been running since the gallery was founded eighteen years ago, so we have learned how to do it since then. If you want to find information on exhibitions quickly, or to see good photographs of work… it is all very accessible on-line and on the move. 











5  The Beauty of the old church


Kilmorack Gallery is housed in the beautiful old Kilmorack Church which was built in 1786 at a time when the Lovat Estates were still forfeited after the battle of Culloden. In 1835 the building was recast in magnificent gothic-revival style, most of which remains as it was, but engrandured by the art.


We have many architectural students and other groups calling-in, looking for the perfect reuse of an old church and they see it. Here old meets new in bold style!



6 What more? Fire, coffee, mind and body

We believe in comfort at Kilmorack Gallery. We have a jura coffee machine that grinds freshly roasted coffee beans and we have a large fire place with a comfortable chair. The Highlands are obviously world class for the outdoors and we are only half-an-hour from Inverness airport. Accommodation: there is everything from bed in a hostel to castles to rent. We have many clients who fly up just to see a piece and many more who find a visit to Kilmorack Gallery a high point of their highland stay.
