Last year the Comrie Heritage Group went ahead with plans to preserve Nissen Hut 1 at Cultybraggan Camp (a B listed building) and transform it into an Exhibition Centre of the Camp and the village of Comrie. John Gilbert Architects were involved in the success of this project and this year entered the GIA (Glasgow Institute of Architechture) Bake competition featuring the hut!



Baker and photographer of the cake, Heather Harbison, spent a lot of her childhood in Comrie as her grandparents lived in the village. To add to the presentation of the cake, Heather used her Nana’s tablecloth and her Grandad’s suitcase, both giving this marvellous piece of work some historical value.



Guided Heritage Tours of Cultybraggan Camp will start again on August 2nd, beginning at 11am with the last tour leaving at 3pm. Adults (£4); Concessions (£3) and children under 16 are free. Anybody with a British Forces Discount Card will be entitled to a further £1 reduction on the ticket price –   British Army Discount Card

The dates for the tours will the Sundays of August 2nd, September 6th, 26th, 27th and October 4th.

Sunday 11th Oct will be a guided tour of the camp at 2pm with Crieff & Strathearn – Drovers’ Tryst.

Come and explore this unique WWII site just outside the village.

Sports & Recreation in Comrie




The ComriFullSizeRendere Development Trust is currently working alongside two environmental intern students from Edinburgh University. Bonnie Hamilton and Grace Sutherland, of Alma College in Michigan, are helping to undertake a survey researching demand from Comrie people for sport and recreational facilities in the village, rather than having to commute to club activities in Crieff or further afield each week.

The Trust is interested in improving the amount and frequency of sporting and recreational activities throughout the village and for all ages and abilities. A survey has been drawn up and can completed by clicking the link: Sports & Recreation in Comrie
