There is a wide range of styles to suit different tastes.

The gallery has a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere.

We visit this lovely shop every time we visit the island. Full of local artwork including photos, oil work and sculptures. So something to suit all. Every time there are new pieces added. Friendly staff who are willing to help and provide artist biographies

Buzzing wee place with a huge range of artwork of a very high standard. I enjoyed my time in the gallery thanks to the owners for thoughtfully providing the very handy dog tie up and water bowl outside. Would definitely recommend a visit to Arran Art Gallery and the nearby cafe 'The Shore' for coffee with picnic tables on the... More

We enjoy travelling with our dog many places restaurants hotels shops galleries even have water and biscuits I usually buy something or tip more for this kindness. This gallery were rude and offhand when I asked if I could come in with the dog. Another lost sale for them.

Well worth a visit. Variety of paintings, prints, ceramics and jewellery ranging in price. Friendly and helpful staff that don't hover around you but allow you to browse at leisure. Beautiful setting in Whiting Bay. I bought a ceramic sea urchin pot by Vanessa Bullick and my sister bought a beautiful coal tit print by the owner Nick Giles who... More

Lovely pieces well worth a look did not buy as they are a bit pricey, friendly staff. Tuck in at the end of a row of shops
