Off the North West coast of Scotland lies a group of rugged islands, The Outer Hebrides. Black Bay sits on the shoreline of one of the smallest islands Great Bernera on the western edge of the archipelago, connected to the Isle of Lewis by bridge. Nestled on a sheltered harbour, the studio found its home in an old crab factory which was meticulously redesigned and renovated in 2016 to accommodate a large 100 mt sq Live Room with 5m pitched ceiling, spacious Control Room and Dead Room, together with comfortable living accommodation. It's a place like no other - the ultimate escape from the rest of the world - somewhere to lose yourself completely in music whilst watching the ever changing ocean and tides.
Between takes, clients enjoy access to coastal walks, some of the most stunning beaches in the world, boat trips, surfing, fishing, wildlife including whales and White Tailed Eagles, ancient standing stones, and in winter months Northern Lights and incredible star filled skies.
It's hard to get more remote in Europe, but Black Bay has great transport links to the mainland UK with daily flights to/from Southend (via Liverpool Street, London), Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness and several ferry sailings each day from both Ullapool and the Isle of Skye. We also have moorings for ocean going vessels and even a helipad.
