Part of Historic Environment Scotland


Opening Times

We are open Monday to Saturday, 10am - 4pm. We are closed Sundays.

Please note the Engine Shed will be closed to the public on Saturday 27 October 2018 due to routine maintenance. 


You’ll be spoiled for choice by our café menu, featuring toasted deli sandwiches, soups, cakes and more.

You can also buy coffee, tea and cold drinks, to sit in or to take away.


A range of gifts designed exclusively for the Engine Shed are available to buy in our shop. You can also purchase copies of our publications.


Visitors will have free access to our public Wi-Fi network, making it easy to stay connected while at the Engine Shed.

Group rest space

Our indoor lunch area can  accommodate up to 35 people. You can ask to book the group rest space when booking a group visit.

Photography and filming

There will generally be no need to seek permission to take photos or to film at the Engine Shed.

Permission will be required if the photography or filming:

  • is for commercial purposes
  • calls for excessive equipment, e.g. full-size tripod

Commercial photography or filming requests must be made at least 14 working days in advance.

We also reserve the right to not allow photography or filming where third party copyright applies to exhibits.
