Description

Dovecot’s unique venue offers more than just a space; it is and environment with a creative backdrop and intriguing history which provokes thought and inspires visitors. A rich array of tapestry projects, collaborations and partnerships have come to fruition in this beautifully restored Victorian baths building since Dovecot Tapestry Studio was rehoused here in 2008.
When you hire a space at Dovecot, your fee contributes toward the charitable mission of the Dovecot Foundation; established to ensure the long term future of tapestry weaving in Scotland.
The spaces available at Dovecot are versatile, allowing for all types of events including conferences, drinks receptions, meetings and launches to accommodate 20-250 guests. The Events Coordinators at Dovecot work in partnership with caterers and audio visual specialists to facilitate the ideas you have for your event whilst incorporating our cultural and historic surroundings of the venue.

The Ladies Baths is based on our first floor with access via the stairs or lift. The room is bright with large windows and a skylight. The space lends itself to conferences, away-days and workshops.

A wonderful Liberty's Exhibition as well as the Viewing Gallery views, and exhibition. The Dazzle exhibition in the Ladies Bath was mouthwatering.

Utterly tasteful, aesthetically and literally. I like watching the weavers quietly working in the old swimming baths below.

Really interesting conversion of Victorian swimming baths. There are exhibition spaces plus you can view the weavers at work from the upper gallery. Good cafe plus unusual high quality gifts.

My husband and I darted into Dovecot Gallery to avoid a downpour more by sheer desperation than design but boy I'm glad we did! This is a fantastic space with outstanding craft and weaving exhibits. The cafe is small with attentive pleasant staff and great coffee. I always make a point of submitting an online review if I've had good service so in this case I'd like to commend the staff of Dovecot for creating a blissful environment for this cold wet Canadian who needed her coffee. It's not to be missed!
