WELCOME TO THE DUNBLANE ALLOTMENT GROUP (DAG) WEBSITE
The Dunblane Allotment Group was formed in 2004 with the aim of re-opening the derelict allotment site at the Laighhills, which had fallen into disuse in the early 1980's. The nearest allotments to Dunblane are at Bridge of Allan, Stirling and Doune. Ours has been a major development for the Dunblane community, providing a significant new amenity for the city in line with the environmental agenda.
The 60,000 square metre site currently houses 53 plots of varying sizes (including 5 relatively new starter plots).
Work by 3 volunteers began in November 2004 and has progressed from that date to a constituted organisation run by a committee formed of volunteers. The committee meets monthly with open meetings held four times a year. Volunteers work regularly to maintain the site with work parties organised at intervals throughout the year to undertake some of the larger more time consuming tasks. The annual Potato Day is usually held on the first Saturday in March - the actual date may vary in line with resource and accommodation availability. A dedicated potato day page can be found under 'About Us' on the main menu above. Read more
In April 2016, a group from the Criminal Justice Team made life much safer for the members of the Dunblane Allotment Group by relaying paths, which had become overgrown, uneven and very slippery. Read More
