Columba Centre

In response to community aspirations to revitalise underused buildings and thanks to the commitment of Historic Environment Scotland (HES) to community initiatives, SWMID has been occupying part of the Columba Centre since October 2017.

The SWMID office is located in the sunny front office, enabling us to be visible and accessible: people feel free to pop in for a chat or give us a wave as they walk past with their dogs.

Our second office has space for hot-desking, with access to WiFi, an A3 printer and laminator. The remaining space is sub-let at affordable rent to local initiatives, including an arts and crafts co-operative and a small but very well-equipped gym.

HES retain ownership of the building and use the part they occupy for maintenance work and storage.
