See RCA NEWS for latest details...

The community has contributed many tens of thousands of pounds in recent years which enabled us to purchase a site, developing plan, get permissions etc. The community received assistance from the Western Isles, Skye & Lochalsh LEADER+ Programme for a feasibility study and from the Scottish Land Fund for assistance with creating the company.

In August 2006 the construction project finally went out to tender and the costs came in much higher than anticipated. After negotiation with the lowest bidder, some cost saving redesign and further fundraising, the RCA raised an astonishing £1,004,000 allowing the project to go ahead.

Grant funding has been received from:

RCA has also received a grant of £12273 from Highland 2007 and the Scottish Arts Council for arts equipment for the hall - seating, staging, a PA system, stage lighting and display boards and further funding from Highland 2007 to commission new music from local artists to celebrate the construction of the hall.

In the final stages of completion The Highland Council (Discretionary Fund) awarded us a further £10,000 to cover extra costs associated with the need to retender the work and undertake some minor remedial work.

While we expect now to be able to make the hall fully useable we can still use further money to complete the hall to the planned perfect finish. We also have limited funds to run the hall and develop the groups to use it to its full potential.

project can be sent to:
