Village Hall Committee

Skirling Village Hall (1903) is owned and run by Skirling village itself - it belongs to the villagers.

Day to day management is by a committee of volunteers, who are responsible for maintenance of the building, hiring out the hall and running village social events.

The hall is available for hire to villagers at a minimal cost per hour. Click here for the booking form.
