Cantraybridge Cafe - Training

Cat Burton - Training Cook

Cat joined the Cantraybridge team in August 2016. She loves her job as it combines all her favourite things: baking; feeding folk; growing/eating our own produce (Cat has 2 allotments at home); sharing the joys of cooking; the banter friendship that comes from training our students and having a positive impact in their lives.

Dot MacLean - Assistant Cook

Dot has been with Cantraybridge team since 1995 and she is beloved of the students and staff alike.  Dot has lived right beside Cantraybridge for many years and is the longest serving member of the team.  What Dot doesn't know about the college or local history generally isn't worth knowing!  

Supporting young adults to reach their potential

About the College

Cantraybridge promotes the skills and talents of young people with disabilities. We champion the rights of young people by creating opportunities to learn and grow.


We support our students to develop skills equipping them for work. We empower our young people through a managed transition from college to enhance their employability.

Independent Living

We provide accommodation for 20 students attending College. Residents develop their independent living skills whilst they are here in preparation for living in a place of their own.

Social Enterprise

Our Social Enterprise includes Cantraybridge Cafe and Venue Hire, our Market Garden and the visitor facilities at our Aviary department. We are open from Monday to Friday 12pm - 2pm
