Waterston House – also known as The Scottish Birdwatching Resource Centre – is the headquarters of the SOC. Situated to the west of Aberlady village, just off the scenic coast road from Edinburgh, the centre offers panoramic views of Aberlady Bay Local Nature Reserve and houses the George Waterston Library. The library is open to the general public, and houses the largest collection of ornithological reference books and journals in Scotland. A small retail area offers optical equipment, Club merchandise, bird seed, hand-carved wooden birds, wildlife art books, new and second-hand natural history books and bird guides, including the SOC's award-winning 2007 publication The Birds of Scotland. Hot and cold drinks are available in the foyer. The building also houses the Donald Watson art gallery which showcases the best national and international wildlife artists throughout the year.
