The History of Bouldover Climbing Centre
In November of 2019, three friends, all keen climbers, identified the premises which we now lease in Annan as potentially suitable for the construction of a climbing wall facility. The large building, previously a cinema when built, and more recently a bus storage facility, wasn’t in a good state of repair. With extensive asbestos cladding, boarded up windows, a leaky roof and a resident flock of roosting starlings we knew it would take vision and hard work to bring our business to reality.
We incorporated our business the very next month!
Our initial research identified a report by Mountaineering Scotland describing a lack of provision within the region of indoor climbing facilities. This inspired us and we set about speaking with Mountaineering Scotland, Sport Scotland and South of Scotland Enterprise to assist us with grant funding. We were awarded our grant in December 2020 almost a year to the day since our incorporation.
Throughout 2020 we improved the building with new external cladding, new toilets, a cafe area, our reception area and an office. In January of 2021 our construction phase took a leap forward and we appointed a specialist contractor to help deliver our main bouldering wall.
It’s been a labour of love. We hope you like it!
