Over 20% of Scotland’s houses are traditional buildings. Can we make them more energy efficient while making sure their historic character is preserved? Senior Technical Officer Lila explores three projects doing just that.
Robert Stevenson was famous for designing and building many of Scotland's historic lighthouses in the late 1700s. Discover more about the engineer who constructed wonders of engineering that have stood the test of time.
Our volunteers meet and greet our visitors, help with events and make sure even our wee-est visitors have lots of fun. Catch up with volunteer Kristin, to discover what it's like being an Engine Shed volunteer.
The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage 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.
