The Hall

Crathes Public Hall is a wood-lined village hall just west of Crathes Crossroads (junction of the A93 North Deeside Road and A957 Stonehaven Road), three miles east of Banchory.

Originally built in 1929, the hall has been improved and extended in 2001 and 2012 . The hall is available for weddings, parties, concerts, jumble sales, dances, lessons, club meetings etc. ​​

The hall is 16 metres by 9 metres. Car parking currently exists for approximately forty cars.

The Hall Is a Scottish registered Charity with OSCR ( Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator) and is run by a Board of Trustees, who are all volunteers from the local area.
