What's been happening at Macaulay College lately?
We have had a really busy year so far
.  We will do a proper update soon but wanted to let you know about just some of what we've been involved with in the last few months.

  • We are working hard on the essential building refurbishment & extension project and  have secured £0.5 million from the UK Government Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities as well as other local funding from Crown Estates and Galson Estate.  We are working in partnership with HIE and CNES for further funding.

  • We are currently taking part in a Social Impact Pilot Project through Highlands and Islands Enterprise this will help us evidence the work we do.

  • We have had an Impact Visit from the Health & Social Care Alliance which involved a case study and filming which will be showcased at the National Conference in May.

  • In October we won the Social Enterprise Scotland Award for Health & Social Care!                                                          




Macaulay College is a Community Interest Company, based on the family owned farm on the Isle of Lewis, previously the Macaulay Experimental Peat Farm.


It was founded by artists and educators Roland Engebretsen and Rebecca Lindsay in 2010. 


Macaulay College provides people with additional social and educational requirements with a programme of activities that encourages them to have meaningful and fulfilling working and social lives whilst achieving their full potential and reaching person specific targets.

"Working with animals, meeting friends, having fun, learning new things at the same time. Makes me stronger, gave me muscles, stopped me being scared of animals, taught me new things, art, cooking baking, shopping, woodwork."

— Macaulay College Student
