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 208 in size which makes it ideal for school cluster groups. Our refurbished dorms can each accommodate 48 plus 4 accompanying leaders.
- Accommodation is in cedarwood chalets – Glamis, 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 reed bed sewerage system is among the unusual features that help reduce SOEC’s environmental impact and provide practical examples of alternative technology to all our visitors. We hope to reinstigate our solar panel roof on the dining room in due course.
- Belmont has undergone recent refurbishment to create modern and comfortable accommodation and facilities. Most leader accommodation is now en-suite.
