Who We Are

Garenin Gallery is a family business run by twin brothers Joseph and Benjamin Kirkman. Their Grandfather, Callum Macdonald, grew up just down the road in the local community of Knock, Carloway. The two brothers spent much of their childhood visiting the Isle of Lewis and as such, fell in love with the Island, it's landscape and it's people.

Now age 21, they have both built a photo and art gallery located next-door to the stunning Gearannan Blackhouse Village on the west coast of the island.

What We Do

We are an art gallery and giftshop that specializes in Scottish artists and makers. We sell a variety of items from handmade gifts created by island locals to canvases and large prints from well-known Scottish artists.


Our resident photographer, Joseph Kirkman ARPS, started this journey when nearing completion of his photography degree with Bath Spa University. During which he decided that he wanted to make a living as a professional landscape photographer & return to the islands as he has done every year from the age of 7. However this time he wanted to create unique abstract prints of the Hebrides' constantly changing landscape and run his own art gallery with his twin brother Ben.
