Scotland’s Abriachan Hall
The Abriachan Hall is a village hall and is situated in Abriachan in the Inverness and Nairn region. The Abriachan Hall is quite an old building and was built in 1920, but since then it has had a complete make-over having been fully refurbished in 2000.
If you don’t have your own transport you can get to the Abriachan Hall from the Inverness train station, which is about eight miles from the hall. There are unfortunately no buses heading to that area, but if you have your own transport you will find it is a short distance from Inverness, about twenty minutes and it will be on the right hand side of the A82 Loch Ness road heading in the direction of Abriachan.
The Abriachan hall is an A-frame and has an old wooden sprung floor which can be used for various occasions. The hall has quite a dark color scheme due to all the dark mahogany tongue-and-groove wood that has been used on the walls, which really warms up the inside of the hall and provides great acoustics. There is no permanent stage provided, thus performers usually perform on the wooden floor and the seating is very casual with only loose wooden chairs provided.
There are heaters in and around the Abriachan hall all of which work on a coin meter. There is a variety of lighting provided for the hall and stage use, and two Peavey speakers on either side of the hall are provided. Other sound equipment includes is two microphones, a CD player, and a Carlsboro amplifier.
There is free parking provided at the hall in Abriachan, but space is limited so keep that in mind if you are planning an event. Abriachan is a small village so what it has to offer is limited. If you are keen to eat out or you just want some groceries then you will have to head twenty minutes to either Drumnadrochit or Inverness. All networks for mobile phones can be found here, with a payphone just up the road if you head west. Other facilities that you may need, like cash points, a launderette and a filling station, can again only be found at Inverness or Lewiston, which is by Drumnadrochit.
