Belmont Centre

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. The Centre accommodates groups of up to 185 in dorms plus 18 single en suite rooms, making it ideal for school cluster groups.  Dorms each accommodate 48 plus 4 accompanying leaders.
