Part of Historic Environment Scotland


Opening Times

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


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.

We don't stock single use disposable cups or soup containers. If you're looking for a takeaway soup or drink please help us reduce waste and protect the environment by bringing your own reusable.


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.
