Situated in the beautiful and unspoilt Glenkens area, a warm welcome awaits you at this 4-star contemporary community and arts centre.
Recently voted the Cultural Champion of the region in the recent Dumfries & Galloway Life magazine awards, The CatStrand offers a year-round programme of theatre, music, comedy, storytelling, exhibitions, films and community events.
It is also a hub for visitor information on places to visit and things to do in the area, including local walks and wildlife. Enjoy delicious home baking in the cafe before perusing the centre's fantastic shop which sells a selection of crafts from local artists and makers.
Named after the small stream that once ran through it, and now under the building, the venue incorporates a number of energy-efficient and renewable energy features. As a result it has been awarded VisitScotland's prestigious Gold Green Business Tourism Scheme award and has also been named as Scotland's Greenest Arts Venue.
