About Us

The Big Shed is a community building in Highland Perthshire, owned and run by Loch Tayside Community Interest Company.  It is run by unpaid volunteers on a not-for-profit basis.  We're located on a piece of land generously donated by the farmer, at Tombreck , a friendly and creative working farm, which is in 240 acres of hill ground on Loch Tay.

The Big Shed is an ideal venue for groups interested in sustainable farming & growing,  as the  farm  is part of the Permaculture Learning &  Demonstration network.                                    https://www.permaculture.org.uk/ 

 

 

Tombreck Farm borders Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve, which encompasses nine mountains within the Southern slopes of Ben Lawers and the Tarmachan range, seven of which are Munros. The area attracts walkers and climbers of all levels, drawn to the varied and scenic routes available.  Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve,

The Big Shed opened in 2011, and aims to inspire a revival of community spirit, sense of identity and local pride.

We provide affordable work and meeting spaces for community groups, social enterprises and small businesses, as well as shared spaces including a 60-seater community hall, commercial kitchen and bakery, and small social space with a lovely warm stove. There is easy wheelchair access and a lift.

Our timber-framed eco-building was built using local, natural and renewable materials, as well as some reclaimed and recycled materials and components.

The  venture  started in 2003  when  the  Tombreck Action Group  was set up, with a vision  for diversifying  the activities   of  rundown  Tombreck  farm 'to  include  other  people,  and  provide  housing and  employment  at a sustainable level'. The number of households has increased and several small businesses operate from here and Big Shed events attracts audiences from Breadalbane and the whole of the region

It's hoped the local community will continue to flourish with a strong sense of ownership, belonging, sharing and genuine  cooperation.

We’re keen to welcome  people from outwith the local area to  this special place and  hope to increase use of the building for arts, crafts and music over the coming year.
