Greenbrae Steading is a place for the community. We love this area and want to do everything we can to help it flourish.

Our coworking space allows freelancers, small business owners, and remote workers to come together while working instead of being isolated at their houses. After a year of working from home, this is more important than ever. Instead of looking at the same wall over and over, you can look out the window and see beautiful views of the Firth. When the weather is nice, sit at the outdoor tables to have your lunch. Go for a stroll or take your bike along the bike path.

When your work is done, we provide a place to come together in a different way. Use our showroom for brownies meetings. Have your yoga group come gather. Plan a party that doesn’t have to fit in your garden.

Our mission is to bring people together and keep our community strong.


Originally a working farm and the entrance to Greenbrae Quarry, Greenbrae Steading was a part of Greenbrae Farmhouse up until Neil and his dad, John, bought it in 2001.


By the time Neil and his dad took ownership, the Steading building was quite run down and in need of repair. However, Neil was a joiner so this was no problem. He used the Steading as a base to run his own business and spent his spare time renovating and restoring the original Steading buildings.

In 2008, Neil set up Greenbrae Stoves, selling high quality woodburning stoves. As the business became more successful, the main steading building was converted into an office and showroom for the stoves.

In 2019, Neil decided to close Greenbrae Stoves in order to do something else with the space. He was keen to build something that was a part of the community, and so the thought of Greenbrae Steading began. Little did he know that Covid-19 was on the horizon and that by 2021 a community space would be more important than ever.
