Johnston School

Kirkcudbright Development Trust has manage to secure all the money needed to bring Johnston School back to life, with a total of over £2.5 million raised. We are very grateful to all our funders and are excited to see building work begin at the end of July.

Once building work is complete the building is expected to house the Dark Skies Visitor Centre, a nursery, a storage facility for Kirkcudbright Festivities, a gin distillery, a pottery, the youth drop-in, the Kirkcudbright Development Trust offices, and a community conference room.
