What to expect

Part of Historic Environment Scotland, the Engine Shed is a hub for digital innovation and building conservation specialists.

We are continuing to use our centre to deliver skills development and training for the heritage sector.

From Monday to Friday, our building is open for Historic Environment Scotland staff and students.

The centre currently remains closed to the public while we review our outreach offer.

However, you can still hear from our experts with our newsletter, blog and free livestreams for property owners.

Conservation in action

Our home exemplifies the contemporary use of traditional materials and sympathetic design and construction. Read about the truly innovative and engaging space that awaits when you visit.
