St Margaret’s Braemar
A wide range of organisations and individuals care for the historic environment across the private, public and voluntary sectors.
|Organisation:||Scottish Redundant Churches Trust (with St Margaret’s Trust Braemar)|
|Project title:||St Margaret’s Braemar– A Centre for Discovery, Performance and Enjoyment in the Heart of the Cairngorms|
The project addresses the long-term future of St Margaret’s Braemar, an A-listed church on the Buildings at Risk Register for over 10 years. Disused since 2007, it was taken into SRCT’s care in a derelict state. Working with the local St Margaret’s Trust, meanwhile uses have been introduced to engage the community, reanimate the building, pilot potential end uses, and demonstrate the project’s long-term sustainability. Despite its poor condition the number and range of activities have grown to include world-class performers and artists. Community support and volunteering has increased significantly with St Margaret’s now perceived as an asset to Braemar.
