Bringing the community together

Black Bull Hub & Pub Gartmore

The Black Bull Hotel has been serving the interests of Gartmore and the surrounding areas for 300 years and to ensure its continued survival, the community took matters into their own hands and took ownership of its newest venture, the Black Bull Hub & Pub on 2nd September 2019.

This could not have been achieved without the coming together of more than 250 members raising over £70,000. This provided the starting costs and balance needed to secure a grant of £217,500, awarded by the Scottish Land Fund, to buy the Black Bull Hotel and transform it into a Hub & Pub to meet the needs of villagers, neighbours, friends and visitors.

Dating from the 1700s, the pub was used by cattle drovers bringing their cattle from field to market. It seems only fitting that the pub should be called the Black Bull in recognition of its role in providing the wearisome drovers with a brief respite on their long journey south.

We hope that the Black Bull will continue to be a place of warmth, cheer and welcome for many generations to come.
