The Former Dumbarton Academy and Burgh Hall is a category A listed building in Dumbarton, central Scotland. It was built in 1865 to house Dumbarton Academy, and was designed by the architect William Leiper. It became derelict in the later 20th century, having been damaged by a fire in 1976. West Dunbartonshire Council proposed to demolish the building in 1994, but this was rejected. Partial demolition took place in 2008 to remove unstable structures, retaining the front facades and side walls. In October 2015, a grant of £500,000 was announced by Historic Environment Scotland, to fund redevelopment of the building as part of a new headquarters for West Dunbartonshire Council.
