Walk through the abandoned chapel, find yourself in a graffiti artists’ paradise and try to imagine what life might have been like for the young men who lived here during the 1960s. This is a rare opportunity to visit Scotland’s most iconic modernist building in its raw and ruined state.
We’re excited to announce that St Peter’s will be part of the programme for Doors Open Day 2017, with walking tours of the building taking place on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 September.
The tours are free and advance booking is essential. Tickets will be released on Tuesday 29 August at 10.30am.

We’ve always been fans of drinking gin. So much so that we decided to make our own. With a lot of help from our friends at the Glasgow Distillery Company and packaging and design agency Stand, we have created 1,000 stunning bottles of a limited edition gin, inspired by the historic landscape of Kilmahew.
Infused with orange peel, bramble leaf and rosehip, the gin balances citrus and juniper for a zesty, full-flavoured spirit.
Proceeds from the sale of Kilmahew Gin will help support our plans to gradually bring the abandoned Victorian walled garden back into productive use.

The extraordinary ruins of the world-renowned St Peter’s seminary sit shrouded deep in Kilmahew woods on the west coast of Scotland. NVA has produced a practical and ambitious scheme to reclaim the future of this remarkable site; combining partial restoration, consolidation and new design to create a 600 capacity venue and productive landscape for public art and learning.
After years of dreaming, scheming, battling, planning and persuading, we are able to take forward the revival of St Peter’s seminary and Kilmahew woodlands. Today we received confirmation of £4.2m in funding to take forward the vision we have been developing for 8 years. The building was so nearly lost and this gives hope that Scotland and Europe will gain a new cultural centre worthy of the optimism and ambition that created it exactly 50 years ago. We thank Heritage Lottery Fund and Creative Scotland for joining us in the vision and ambition for the site and investing in its future.
