Have attended a course at this venue. There isn't a lot of parking but it's fine to park out on the road. The lunch provided of soup and sandwiches was excellent. Served up with plenty od fresh fruit. There was also nice cakes and scones served up during the day with tea/coffee. The venue also has a gift shop selling... More

Home baking, simple food and venue is a local arts hub. Easily accessible for all. Fantastic stop off point selling both local art and some from further afield.

We have attended a variety of events at the Catstrand, mostly musical. It is a first class venue for it's rural location, with friendly and helpful staff. Prices are reasonable and the auditorium atmosphere is good, if a little cramped for long legged people. The bar and 'lounge' area can be quite tight when there's a full house in the... More

Good place to visit for a little retail therapy and a light meal in the café, both with a local flavour. The building is very well laid-out to also include a theatre which hosts the cultural events for the area throughout the year. The staff are very welcoming and informative. We visited during the Spring Fling (annually, end of May),... More

We've visited this venue many times for musical events..........from Bennie Gallagher (remember Gallagher & Lyle?), to Salsa Celtica, to Lau. All World class acts in an intimate setting. The seating arrangements are strangely organised so we get there early. In the summer the auditorium can be pretty warm but otherwise a great and friendly venue.

I called in late afternoon and the place was full of life - the cafe was comfortable and there was some interesting art on display. The food was fresh and the staff all interested and friendly. Great to see the building so full of life!

I took three friends yesterday, and though there was not a lot going on (well it is late October!) the shop has some of the most unusual items anyone looking for something different to buy as a gift will almost certainly find it here - and the prices are not exorbitant either. The café, where we had a sandwich, is... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting the Catsrand on Friday 27th September as she had booked tickets to see Roddy Hart and the Lonsome Fire and boy were we suprised with the way the Catsrand was laid out. Our hats go off to all concerned on the evening, the residents of New Galloway should be really proud... More
