The Schoolhouse


In 2019 the old Schoolhouse adjacent to the Village Hall was purchased on behalf of the community. Together the Village Hall and the Schoolhouse are now known as Glenfarg Community Centre. The extra indoor and outdoor space will enable us to provide an extended range of activities such as cafe, consultation rooms, arts and craft activities, childcare facilities and more.

A huge thank you to all the volunteers who have helped with preparing both outdoors and indoors spaces. It's been a mammoth task! The village community will benefit from your endeavours for many years to come.

Work started with clearing some trees in the garden. 

After the trees had been cleared, the next task was to remove roots and stones and lay the new lawn. 

All this hard work resulted in a lovely new lawn!

After Covid delays we were finally ready to start with the refurbishment work inside.....


Once again, a HUGE thank you to all the volunteers for your hard work and dedication coming week after week to strip walls, sand skirting, hang wallpaper, paint walls and ceilings and much more! There is still some work to do, so if anyone would like to help out, please contact the Secretary (email below)!

At the 2022 Village Shindig we shared our progress and invited members of the community to vote on a new logo and here it is! Thanks to Ineke Watt for the great design!

We are now starting to plan for different activities to be provided at the Community Centre so if you have any ideas or would like to join our merry band of volunteers please contact:

The Glenfarg Community Centre needs your support and membership! The village Hall is reorganising into a Scottish Incorporated Charitable Organisation or SCIO (Charity Number SC048505).  This gives the Trustees limited liability and also has enabled the hall to raise the funds to create the new Glenfarg Community Centre (which would not have been possible as an unincorporated Association).  The SCIO is called Arngask HalI.  It will trade as Glenfarg Community Centre.



The new SCIO needs to demonstrate strong village support through a wide membership base. This support is vital if funding applications for development of the Schoolhouse are to be successful. Everyone 16 years old and over in the Glenfarg Community Council area is eligible for membership.

You will not be asked for money (it's free). You will not be roped into anything although we would appreciate your help. All we require is you demonstrate your support by becoming a member. You will then have an opportunity to attend members meetings and the Annual General Meeting to voice your opinion.  

Trustees would like everyone to sign up and show they care about the place the hall has in our community. You can see our privacy statement here.



Ever since the closure of the Glenfarg Hotel three years ago, the village has lacked a place for all to meet informally and socialise. The creation of the Glenfarg Community Centre will provide such a place.  It will also offer space for clubs for the young and old alike and perhaps shared office accommodation as well.  A café/bistro will serve meals during the day, as well as morning coffee and afternoon tea.

The Village Hall has now successfully raised the money to purchase the former Schoolhouse that adjoins the hall. The money for the acquisition has come from the Scottish Land Fund and RWE Innogy (the windfarm at Lochelbank).
An open day has been held in the house and around 70 people visited and saw the potential of the proposed Centre. Ideas have been shared about how the Schoolhouse might best be brought into use for the benefit of the whole community. A Business Plan has been prepared based on these ideas, and funding is being raised to complete the conversion of the house and to link it with the Village Hall.

This is an exciting opportunity for our village! We hope that everyone will wish to give their help and support as the project moves forward. There will be plenty of opportunities for groups and individuals to lend a hand to make this a success - and to make a big difference to Glenfarg.
