We want to remove the ugly breeze-blocks from the barn doors - we have waited over 2 years for Listed Building Consent to do this work.


Councillors voted unanimously to grant the application at the Planning Committee Meeting in Hamilton on Tuesday 4th November 2014. The barn was seen as an asset to Biggar and the surrounding area, and the council were supportive of the change which was in accordance with their current strategic plans for the county.

However, although we have Planning Permission, the conditions applied to the change of use made it impossible to use the Barn for any events. The Scottish Ministers have upheld our appeal against certain conditions and amended them accordingly.

We now need to get South Lanarkshire Council to allow Listed Building Consent and sign off the Building Warrant.

The barn, listed by Historic Scotland, has been sympathetically restored using original Welsh slate, whinstone from the nearby quarry, and lime mortar.  There is still a lot of work to be done, but this is a great step towards preserving this historic building for future generations. More assessments, plans and drawings need to be approved by the council in the next few months. The application for Listed Building Consent is still outstanding and will be granted when future building work is approved. It is hoped that the barn can open for events in the Summer.

We aim to create a sustainable venue, using electricity generated from our own small wind turbine.

Please note that we are not taking any bookings for weddings at Cormiston Farm at the moment. Sorry for the disappointment. As soon as the barn becomes available for bookings, we will let you know.
