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).
