About the Hall
Set in the beautiful village of Arisaig in the Highlands of Scotland, the Astley Hall is an old traditional ceilidh hall, built in 1893 by renowned architect Philip Webb, one of the fathers of the Arts and Crafts Movement. It is the only building in Scotland still as he designed it.
In 2000 it was renovated and now has 21st Century facilities, complete access and a hearing loop. There is a stage and the Hall can seat 118.
A varied programme thoughout the year includes music concerts of all genres, dances, ceilidhs and drama. Refreshments on offer during intervals. The hall is open between performances on enquiry.
Every month from May to September we run a Produce Fair which has on offer local plants, vegetables, herbs, etc plus a wide range of hand made crafts. Lunches are provided by different local groups - last year we helped them raise nearly £6000 for their own funds.
We are also the venue for a number of wedding receptions throughout the year. Couples who decide to get hitched on a beach or in the beauty of the Highlands find the Hall is ideal for a wedding meal or buffet followed by a dance. Advice can be given on caterers, bands - even where to get a personally designed 'Arisaig' ring!
