This public meeting was very well attended by around 100 people. There was a chance for everyone to speak in their discussion groups about what they would like to see the legacy spent on for older people in Comrie, and with all of these ideas reported back to the whole meeting.

Heritage Lottery Announce Funding
The Heritage Lottery Fund has announced a substantial award which will enable the Comrie Development Trust to proceed with a great new project – the repair and refurbishment of 11 Nissen huts to create a self catering development at the community owned land at Cultybraggan Camp, the former POW and army training base by Comrie.
The development will safeguard the future of 11 B listed properties to provide a unique visitor experience in a stunningly beautiful Perthshire location. The project will deliver an economic and employment boost to the area during construction and refocus the Trust’s efforts to create financially sustainable resource from the buildings that have played such large part in the history of the village.
Other agencies, Historic Environment Scotland, and our own Community Benefit Society, the Comrie Heritage Self Catering Society, all contributed to the final total fund of £800,000.
