Our 'sustainable' building is available for hire on a one-off or frequent basis for training events, meetings and workshops.

The building

Glachbeg Croft Education Centre provides a meeting and conference venue that will seat 30 people and accommodate up to 70. Your event will take place in a purpose built building constructed using principles of sustainability. What does this mean? The turf roof, and wool insulation provides a high level of energy retention, and the heavily insulated concrete slab below the floor acts as a reservoir for heat. Coated window glass provides maximum levels of natural light. The timber is largely of Douglas Fir harvested locally. In good weather the building opens up to the outdoors adjacent to a pond and overlooking the countryside to Munlochy and beyond. The materials used in construction minimise use of solvents, and together with the 'breathing wall' construction provides a climate conducive to getting the best from people. It really does make a difference!

What we can offer you

As a small family run centre we can offer flexibility to ensure your event is run in a way that suits you best. You can tell us how you want the room laid out, and what facilities you require. We can provide a full catering service if you wish, or provide a 'self service' minimal catering service.
