The Scottish Ornithologists’ Club
This beautifully simple structure is home to the most comprehensive ornithological library in Scotland.
Waterston House is the headquarters of the Scottish Ornithologists’ Club at Aberlady. It accommodates a library, lecture hall and exhibition space, offices and archive store. The building has a simple form that sits well into its rural surroundings.The Forestry Commission Scotland supplied the majority of the timber for the building and the frame was built in our Scottish timber framing yard in Angus. The project is a key example of the effectiveness for public spaces of building with Scottish Douglas fir.
