Belmont is located about 30 minutes from both Dundee and Perth. Geographically an important agricultural area, Belmont is set in around 100 acres within the grounds and woodland of the Belmont Estate where you might see red squirrels and oystercatchers. As well as the activities in our own grounds Belmont gives easy access to the coast near Montrose Harbour and the foothills of the Cairngorms, including beautiful Glen Clova with the glacial formations of Corrie Fee. It is also a good base for skiing at Glenshee.
Alternatively, learn about the local connection to Shakespeare when exploring the Sidlaws where McDuff used to range.
Currently Belmont has one accommodation block, giving a group capacity overnight of up to 48 and 4 leaders.
Belmont’s main hall has a large C-touch screen available to group leaders.
Accommodation is in cedarwood chalets. There is classroom and hall space for group work, planning or indoor games. A reed bed sewerage system is among the features that help reduce SOEC’s environmental impact and provide practical examples of alternative technology to visitors.
Belmont Centre is just a short distance from the village of Meigle, Perthshire, the oldest village in Scotland.
The area is ideal for kayaking and canoe trips.
The Sidlaw Hills and the Grampians can also provide great locations for hill walking and climbing.
