Who are we?

Cultarlann Inbhir Nis, a limited company with charitable status, established in 2020 with the aim of creating a Gaelic Cultural Centre in Inverness. A Feasibility Study commissioned by Alba Heritage Trust and conducted by the Impact Hub in 2018, concluded that there was overwhelming support for such a Centre. Here, locals, Gaelic speakers, learners, visitors and all those with an interest in the language and culture, could meet socially, use the language in a wide variety of activities, enjoy authentic Highland cultural events, attend language classes, strengthen connections and build a collective Gaelic community.

Board of Directors include Alasdair Forbes, Gwen Bowie, Alan MacBeth, Emily MacDonald, David Boag, Murdo Campbell, Mike Danson and Margaret Mulholland. Bòrd na Gàidhlig funds a Project Officer, Ms Susanne MacDonald, and a Social Media Administrator.

News March 2024

The Board of Cultarlann Inbhir Nis are delighted to share the news that now have the keys to Cultarlann Inbhir Nis on Academy Street Inverness. We feel privileged to become the owners of this B-listed historic building. We are looking forward to getting started on the refurbishment in coming weeks and months when we have the funding in place. We are always looking for volunteers to help with a range of different activities so please do get in touch if you might be interested. 

The campaign to date has been backed by a range of funders namely Highlands and Islands Enterprise, Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Inverness Common Good Fund, the Architectural Heritage Fund and Enterprise Scotland.   Their support clearly demonstrates the valuable social and economic contribution that Gaelic language and culture can make  to Inverness and the Highlands.

In addition, we are extremely grateful to the 600 people who showed their support and belief in the project by contributing so generously to the two Crowdfunders. A huge thank you to each and every one of you.

Àite far an cluinn sinn Cànan na Gàidheil!

Let us build up a new Highlands
With brain, sweat of cheek and by hand
Highlands of which we can be proud
An exalted noble place for language and music
With life-giving food for spirit and body
Always available on your table

Suas togamaid Gàidhealtachd nuadh
Le eanchainn, braon-gruaidh agus dòirn,
Gàidhealtachd às ‘n dèanar uaill,
Àit’ àrd, uasal aig cànan is ceòl
S biadh beathail aig spiorad is brù
Ri fhaotainn a ghnàth air do bhòrd.
