Due to current Scottish Government guidelines, from the 10th January the Bayes Centre will be operating with a limited hours reception service, from 10am to 3pm, Monday to Friday. During this time the reception will be staffed and our main door open. Building residents will be able to access the building with swipe and PIN access from 7am-10pm.

The Bayes Centre team continue to be contactable via email and are happy to assist with any enquiries. You can find our contact details in the Bayes Centre team directory. We continue to support all business development, education, facilities and project related needs remotely in preparation for a time when hope to resume more in-person activities.
