The Boys’ Brigade is raising money for Carronvale House, the Headquarters of The Boys' Brigade in Scotland, to safeguard the future of this magnificent building. Carronvale is very much at the centre of the fantastic work which The Boys' Brigade carries out with its 20,000 young members in Scotland.  It is the centre for its national training and has been since 1947.

The house, which is a listed building, is currently in need of a significant investment to improve disabled access and carry out essential repairs and maintenance.
