Join us for a free guided tour of our building - Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre.

Our building in Stirling was once a military goods and transfers shed, built sometime between 1896 and 1913. The exact details of its construction were subject to an information blackout and are still unknown today.

In 2017, after an extensive restoration, we opened our doors to the public.

During the guided tour, you’ll learn more about our building including:

How it was made using traditional materials in a contemporary way

How we’ve recycled or restored many other traditional materials during the restoration

No age or access restrictions. No parking at the Engine Shed. Visitors can use other carparks nearby inc. Forthside Way.
