What's On

Welcome to the Engine Shed

We are Historic Environment Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. As a hub of digital innovation and heritage science, we are home to specialist labs. Through events and 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.
