Why Choose Belmont?
Located in the valley of Strathmore, Perthshire, Belmont Centre is situated in an estate of 100 acres of outstanding beauty.
The most northerly of SOEC’s Centres, Belmont has a wide range of on-site activities such as the ever-popular flying fox and the night-line which is ideal for team building. The Centre can accommodate groups of up to 240 in size which makes it ideal for school cluster groups. Refurbished dorms can accommodate up to 148 pupils plus accompanying staff.
- Accommodation is in cedarwood chalets – Glamis, Eassie, Alyth, Meigle, Newtyle and Ardler, named after the local towns and villages. There is also ample classroom and hall space for group work, planning or indoor games.
- Belmont Centre takes environmental responsibility very seriously and actively encourages visitors to become involved. A photovoltaic (solar panel) roof and reed bed sewerage system are among the unusual features that help reduce SOEC’s environmental impact and provide practical examples of alternative technology to all our visitors.
- Belmont has undergone recent refurbishment to create modern and comfortable accommodation and facilities. Most leader accommodation is now en-suite.
