Raising the Roof in Rothesay!

LiveArgyll is literally raising the roof at Rothesay Leisure Centre and replacing it with a brand new one!

The centre first opened its doors in 1989 and has played a huge part in providing health, fitness and fun to the community of Rothesay for the past 30 years. This major undertaking is part of LiveArgyll and Argyll and Bute Council’s commitment to ensuring that our communities continue to be offered services of the highest standard.

The facility will close on Friday 21 of June for 21 weeks. This includes the children’s play park at the back of the centre. The work being carried out includes a number of improvements such as the creation of private showers and a wet room area, to help improve disabled access and drainage. The work will also include updating the facility’s plant equipment and filtration, as wells as general maintenance throughout the building. These improvements will ensure that the building and the services delivered will continue to be of the highest standard for years to come.

Swimming Provision

For members who wish to swim, take a fitness class at the Queen’s Hall or use the Riverside gym there will be a free mini-bus travelling every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday from Monday 9 September. The bus times are as follows:

  • Departs – Moat Community Education Centre – 9am
  • Arrives – Queen’s Hall Dunoon Approx. – 10.30am
  • Departs – Queen’s Hall Dunoon Approx. – 2pm
  • Arrives – Moat Community Education Centre – 3.15pm

Members who wish to take advantage of this service will be able to book at the Moat Community Education Centre reception.  Please note that bookings must be made by 4pm on the day prior to travel.  All members wishing to use the facilities in Dunoon must bring their membership card to ensure admission. Members are asked to arrive 15 minutes prior to departure time.

For further information on any of the services delivered by LiveArgyll, as well as membership packages, please contact the Moat Community Education Centre on: 01700 503696

As a local charity re-investing in our communities, LiveArgyll would like to thank all our customers for their continued support and we look forward to welcoming you all back when the doors reopen.

Fitness Classes Information

Although the centre will be closed for 21 weeks the team will continue to deliver fitness classes and gym facilities at the Moat Education Community Centre and Rothesay Joint Campus.
