Hall Update:

With the events of recent months still at the forefront of many minds, the Trustees of Crathes Hall felt it was time to re-connect with our Community. 

There is no doubt that a number of people will be reticent to venture out as we all did before, but with sensible precautions and a degree of personal awareness we hope to be able to return to a thriving social, community-based programme of events and classes at the hall in the fullness of time.

Our fundraising for the new hall has inevitably slowed significantly and we realise that there are many other charities who depend solely on public donations in order  to fund their activities which help and care for those in the Community who need it the most. We recognise that the needs of those charities are much greater than ours at the present time.

The Hall Facebook page and website will keep you updated and hopefully in the not too distant future we will be able to let you know when the hall can re-open.

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.

After a community consultation in June 2017 and a feasibility study,  plans have recently been passed for the construction of a new hall fit for the 21st Century.
