What's On

Welcome to the Engine Shed

We’re Historic Environment Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. As a hub of digital innovation and heritage science, we’re home to specialist labs. Through events and accredited training, we share technical knowledge to support Scotland’s skills needs. We believe built heritage should be explored, understood and looked after for future generations.
