Minginish Hall

Minginish Community Hall

Minginish Community Hall is at the heart of life in this beautiful Skye peninsula.

Built in the Spring of 2009, it was the culmination of years of fundraising, meetings, community consultations and grant applications by volunteers.

The huge effort brought the people of Minginish together to provide a space for gatherings, from dances and drama, to sporting activities, cultural and historical events.

Over £500,000 was raised to fund the project, which replaced its predecessor in Carbost. Minginish Community Hall Association, a charitable organisation, was created to own and run the site for the benefit of all. A large, bright, modern building, the hall was designed by Broadford-based architects Wittets to offer a wide range of uses.

It has become a focal point for people of all ages, from the toddlers who benefit from the parent group, through to the children and adults who enjoy sports and school plays, clubs, social events, summer galas and dances. The hall has become home to the successful Lamb to Loom event, which celebrates the heritage of Skye’s once forgotten Portnalong weavers and our present-day artists and makers.

Its art exhibitions and Made in Minginish Craft Fair have helped draw visitors to the area, boosting local businesses. As a unique venue the building has attracted performers from around the world. It has even been visited by Danish football star Jan Molby, and hosted American singer song-writer Neil Diamond (sort of) during one memorable musical night of Stars, Stripes and hotdogs.

It has seen use by the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, and most recently acted as a base for vaccinations and home to the vital food hub, as the community deals with Covid 19.

 As lockdown eases, and life returns to normal, the hall will reawaken from its slumber and return to regular use as a busy centre of activity. During its first decade it has achieved the ambitious goal of becoming a focal point for the community, improving the quality of life for everyone in Minginish.
