Ardchattan School at Bonawe was built in 1886 and closed in 2014.
It is a complex granite building, with the teachers house beside. It has two classrooms, an art area and general purpose room as well as an office, a separate canteen building and a large playground and garden area. The school has been the heart of the community activities for decades.
