CatStrand is a unique venue in historic New Galloway, the smallest Royal Burgh in Scotland. Originally the town’s primary school, the granite building was imaginatively renovated and extended in 2006/07 to create a multi-use arts and visitor centre.
Ideally situated right in the heart of Dumfries & Galloway at the gateway
to the Galloway Forest Park, CatStrand offers the following:
• Free wi-fi • Open 7 days throughout the year • Dog friendly
Architect: ARP Lorimer, Ayr (renovation and extension 2006/07)
Building Date: 1800's/2007
There is a conference being held in CatStrand on Saturday 7th September, the building will be very busy and access to some rooms may be restricted at certain times. Full access on Sunday 8th.
The current art exhibition will be ‘Landscapes’ by Caroline Hone. Our permanent art collection will also be on display.
Informal tours of the building will also be available on the Sunday plus a pictorial history of the renovation project.
