Brief History of Site: The Kilmacolm Institute was formerly the Buchanan Arms Hotel, taken over by the parish when the sale of alcohol was outlawed in a local referendum under the Temperance (Scotland) Act 1913. In the latter period of its existence, The Institute served as a community centre with a few usable rooms and a small village library. Two shops, Hugh Rose’s grocer and the smaller attached greengrocer shop, are included within the site. In its heyday, The Institute housed facilities for bathing, a ladies’ sewing room and even a billiards room. It aimed to provide a community hub, far removed from the demonic influence of alcohol, which had played such a part in Kilmacolm’s early history. The village lacked a pub until the early 1990s, when the Pullman bar-diner opened in the former railway station. However, the Institute became increasing dilapidated. The conversion of the two former Victorian schoolhouses across the road into the Cargill Centre saw the library moved in 2011. Architecture: Taylor Grange have been able to exploit the building’s multiple levels, with the former stables (latterly a garage) in Smithy Brae, being incorporated into the design. Red sandstone has been used in order to harmonise with the rest of St James Terrace. Description: All viewings will be accompanied by our professional Viewing Agent who has lived her life in Kilmacolm.
