About Us

Welcome to the Strathaven Town Mill


To give the Town Mill back to the community of Strathaven and the surrounding area by offering rooms and halls for hire for events and exhibitions as well as promoting a wide range of events organized by our members.

The Town Mill was built in the 17th century in the shadow of Strathaven Castle, another well known historic landmark. Known throughout the county for years as a focal point for community gatherings and particularly musical clubs and groups, It has had many uses throughout its life, even housing the local tourist information office for a short time.

The Arts and Heritage Centre was set up to bring back the good times to the Town Mill and reinstate it to its pomp as the local venue for the arts and local culture. Over the years we have made huge steps toward our goals, and continue to be committed to the the cause.
