Community Asset Ownership

GURCA owns, runs and maintains a range of community assets.

Blairbeg Park
The playing field & pavilion is owned by GURCA. In 2021, GURCA entered into a 99 year lease with Glen Urquhart Shinty Club for the park and pavilion. Shinty Matches and training sessions take place on the field. The shinty club is responsible for the maintenance of Blairbeg Park and the pavilion.

Glen Urquhart Shinty Club

The annual Glenurquhart Highland Gathering and Games take place on the field every August.

Glenurquhart Highland Gallery and Games Website

The field is used as the safe viewing area for the annual bonfire and fireworks display.

The field can be made available for suitable events. For further information about how to book use of the field please contact

Village Green
GURCA owns and maintains the main village green. The green can be used for occasional events (such as the Market on the Green and Highland dancing displays) but due to its location close to shops and residential properties, the types of event that can take place here are limited. Please contact our secretary for further information.

Glenurquhart Public Hall (also known locally as Blairbeg Hall)
The hall is very well used, by clubs, societies and individuals, for a variety of meetings, sporting and leisure activities. For further information visit the hall website here.

Loch Ness Hub
GURCA purchased the building in the village car park from Highland Council through a Community Asset transfer in 2021. This is now called the Loch Ness Hub. GURCA leases this building to the Community Benefit Company, Loch Ness hub who operate it as a tourism and transport hub and also manage the public toilets. GURCA is the anchor shareholder in the Loch Ness Hub company. Loch Ness Hub pays rent to GURCA and additional excess profits from Loch Ness Hub come back to GURCA for community projects.
