Located at Forthside, Stirling, the Engine Shed is Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. Part of 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 centre resource is designed to encourage a greater understanding of traditional building materials and skills – and inspire future generations to continue to care for Scotland’s built heritage.          

Planned and delivered during the coming together of Historic Scotland and the Royal Commission for the Historic and Ancient Monuments of Scotland, to create Historic Environment Scotland, the Engine Shed opened in July 2017. Since then the following has been achieved:

46,161 visitors to the Engine Shed (total visits)
