Seallam! is the premier Visitor Centre on the beautiful Isle of Harris and provides exhibition facilities to suit all degrees of interest, with a main static exhibition for the first-time visitor and changing displays for the many return visitors. There are also visiting exhibitions at times through the year.
Seallam! Visitor Centre was officially opened by Alasdair Morrison MSP and John MacDonald, Fort William and Northton in July 2000
For the visitor, here is a chance to get to know some of the factors which have had an influence on the development of the various Island communities, while for the more serious student there is a vast resource of detailed source information from different parts of the Hebrides.
Whether you wish to spend an hour or a whole day, there is plenty to occupy your attention at Seallam!
And if you feel the need, there is a tea and coffee bar in the small craft-shop in the reception area!
Seallam! Visitor Centre is located in An Taobh Tuath (Northton) at the southern end of the Isle of Harris. It occupies a central position among the Isles of the Hebrides, with road connection to Lewis, and car ferries to the Uists and Barra.
Seallam! Visitor Centre has assisted disabled facilities.
