The Comrie Allotments Association was formed and formally constituted on 28th of August, 2008 and currently hold a lease with Comrie Development Trust until the 31st March 2024.
A set of simple rules are in place and were drawn up under the initial guidance of CDT and the agreement of the CAA, these are now reviewed and changed only by the Committee and the CAA members at the Annual General Meeting.
There are 41 plots, most are now half plots plus the “Comrie in Colour” Poly tunnel which is plot 31. Plots cost £44 for a 1/2 and £60 for a full plot.
Despite the different weathers of the recent years, canny plot holders of Comrie have still managed to produce some plentiful crops of most kinds of vegetables.
Allotments becomes vacant on a regular basis, mainly due to people moving home, health reasons or occasionally just a loss of interest.

Fundraising is an important part of the Committee’s and plot holder’s requirement in order to keep rents down to as low as possible. When available, we try to have a produce day sale where we sell all excess produce to the village with the plot holders selling teas, coffee and cakes to the public from Hut 107. This hut has kitchen and toilet facilities as well as a small seating area.
