The Engine Shed

The Engine Shed is Scotland's dedicated building conservation centre, based in Stirling. Run by Historic Environment Scotland, it serves as a central hub for building and conservation professionals and the general public.

Our historic built environment is a finite and unique resource, yet its care calls for conservation skills that are in short supply. This new learning and visitor resource will help to encourage a greater understanding of traditional building materials and skills - and inspire future generations to continue to care for Scotland's built heritage.

The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to create Scotland's dedicated building conservation centre. It enables us to encourage understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and professionals and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
