Our next meeting will be at 8pm on Monday, 6th November, in Dreghorn Loan Hall. Gillian Tait, the author of 111 Places in Edinburgh That You Shouldn't Miss, will be joining us to talk about the stories behind some of the places she has included. After the talk, there will be an opportunity to buy signed copies of Gillian's book.

Colinton Local History Society was founded more than thirty years ago to record the history of the ancient Parish of Colinton. Since then, our members have carried out various research projects covering gravestone inscriptions, census records and old photographs. We are currently busy digitising our extensive archive and working on an oral history of the parish.

We hold meetings twice a month between October and March, and invite guest speakers to talk to us on a variety of historical subjects covering both local and Scottish history.

Our meetings are held on the first and third Mondays of the month (Oct-Mar) in Dreghorn Loan Hall, Colinton EH13 0DE. New members are extremely welcome, as are visitors (there is a small entry charge for non-members).
