Dates of existence

c. 1860 -


Buchanan Primary School has been in operation since 1860 and continued until 2018 when it was temporarily closed due to the last pupils on the small school roll transferring to nearby Drymen Primary. In April 1912, new buildings were opened across from the original schoolhouse as the school became a “Higher Grade School” where additional space allowed for more practical activities to be taught. This building became the modern Primary School, with extensions in 1965 and 1995, and the original schoolhouse was converted into holiday accommodation.
