Mid Argyll Community Pool (MACPool) is a social enterprise enabling the community to swim and take part in exercise, leisure, and social activities in support of health and wellbeing. The redevelopment of the pool was planned following consultation with the mid argyll community to provide better changing facilities, soft play for smaller children, a café, meeting and a therapy room. To reflect our new facilities, we have adapted our name to the MACPool Activity Hub.

John Gurr Chair of MACEL said “We have finally been handed back a completed building at the end of April and I would like to thank everybody who has worked so hard to make this happen.

The MACPool Hub Manager, Fiona MacAlpine said “It is really good news that after a year without a pool, we are going to be welcoming our swimmers back and we will be able to offer soft play for pre-school children and a new café too.  If you have passed the pool in the past few weeks you will have seen the scaffolding is down the outside area has been repaired repainted and we have new signage. 

We are planning to open the pool and soft play from the 16th May, with an official opening on the 28th May. All facilities including the café will then be fully open to the public from Monday 30th May.

We still have lifeguard vacancies for evenings, weekends and school holidays and we also have some part time cleaner vacancies. Please look for updates on our website, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for details of opening times and new activities.”

Specific information on swimming lessons will be available soon.
