The Heritage Learning Centre
Built in 1894, The William Richardson conservatory and the adjacent bothies have been brought back to life with a new focus thanks to the help of a major grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The space has now been transformed into an exhibition space and provides facilities for education & adult learning.
The exhibition rooms in the bothies allow visitor to discover more about the history of gardening on the estate, and the characters that have worked here. There is also an exhibition which explores the modern day architectural restoration of the building which was finished in 2015 thanks to a significant donation from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The Conservatory hosts a number of courses, workshops and lectures for adults throughout the year, as well as offering an educational programme for visiting school groups. Take a look at our Events pages to see what is available.
