Outdoor Learning

The Almondell Model Engineering Centre is a perfect venue for outdoor learning and it is a facility that we want to develop and promote to schools, higher education, youth groups and industry.

We have 11.5 acres of woodland, a pond area, picnic site, spaces for making things, eco-piles for bugs & insects and many other activities. This is all set around the railway themed home of the Edinburgh Society of Model Engineers.



There is free onsite car and coach parking and a 400 sqm Heritage Building for rainy days with toilets, kitchen, a large conference/classroom with full audio visual facilities, a training workshop and small meeting room.

We would love to hear from teachers, trainers or any organisations that would like to help us make use of our facilities to provide creative learning opportunities.

Contact: development@edinburgh-sme.org.uk  if you would like information about how we can help.
