Cultybraggan Camp is a valuable asset and resource for the people of Comrie.

Being owned by the Comrie Development Trust on behalf of the people of Comrie means that the Community is at the heart of Cultybraggan. Already, the camp is a valued resource for a wide range of groups, clubs and societies based in the village as well as providing facilities and employment for many local people. If you are a local organisation looking for a space to meet or even just space to store your kit, please contact us to discuss what you’re looking for.

Some of the groups already using the camp:

Comrie in Colour. Comrie is renowned for its wonderful floral displays which have earned the village a wide array of awards. With their own polytunnel to work in, most of the plants and flowers you see around Comrie started life upp at the camp. More info: http://www.comrie.org.uk/business-directory/101/comrie-in-colour/

Comrie Allotments Association. One of the first community groups to see the potential of the camp, there are now 30 allotments at the camp offering the chance for locals to grow their own produce and flowers. More info: http://www.comrie.org.uk/business-directory/114/comrie-allotments-association/

Comrie Community Orchard. Where once cadets clambered over the camp’s assault course and the camp resounded to the sound of small arms fire, now the community have planted apple trees and soft fruits and the only noise is the clicking of secateurs. Every October the group host an “Apple Day” at the camp and press the fruits of their labour into delicious apple juice.

Comrie Men’s Shed. A new and very active group has recently taken over the old NAAFI. The building has suffered badly because of the weather since the MOD left but this is set to be reversed as the group set about repairing the roofs and making the inside fit for use again.

Comrie Cubs and Beavers. The group has their very own Nissen hut at the camp which they are working hard to renovate to become their main meeting hut. Lots of space outdoors for them to use for sports and games and for the occasional cook-out! More info: https://www.facebook.com/comriecubsandbeavers.

Comrie Guides. Frequent visitors to the camp, the guides borrow one of the events huts for their activities.

Comrie Outdoor Playgroup. Because children love to splash in puddles, eat grass, make dens and get mucky. And Cultybraggan Camp is a perfect place for all of this! The group can often be seen playing around the old rifle range – a more different use of this space is hard to imagine! More info: https://www.facebook.com/cultybraggan/
