The Tulloch Ringing Centre is Scotland’s first dedicated ringing centre. The principal belfry has 12 bells, the tenor being 7-2-4 in Bb and The Last Tower is home to a smaller ring of 8 bells, tenor 1.1.15 in A. In addition we have a simulator permitting practice of all methods.
Visiting Tulloch Ringing Centre? Stay onsite in the Belfry Room.
This is the most northerly ring of 12 in the world and only the second ring of 12 in Scotland. With excellent transport links and local accommodation, coupled with no restrictions on ringing, it is hoped that the facility will be used by visiting bands for teaching, peal ringing and general ringing fun. Tulloch are proud to be the leading tower for quarter peals rung in Scotland for every year since the tower opened in 2013. In addition, a large number of peals have been rung (85 towerbell and 8 handbell peals to May 2019).
The Scottish Association of Change Ringers opened the belfry with a peal of Yorkshire Surprise Maximus on March 10th 2013, and the 12 bells are now available for any other peal requests.
The Ringing Centre is based in Tulloch Farm, which has accommodation available for rent (www.tullochfarm.co.uk) as well as a games room, adventure playground and riverside walks to keep non-ringers entertained during the ringing.
Some regular ringing happens each week, usually Tuesdays 7–9pm: but please contact the tower correspondent for confirmation and details. Other ringing by arrangement, for details of which see the calendar on the website. The bells are available to visiting bands without charge, but donations to the Scottish Association BRF are encouraged.
For details of ringing please check the Tulloch Callendar and then email us at tullochbells[at]gmail.com.
