News from Colinton Local History Society

Anyone recognise any faces from the class of 1936 at Colinton Public School? We know that one chap is David Dickson because his name is on the back of the photo, but does anyone have other ideas?


Following our successful 2020/21 season of online talks, and due to continuing Covid-19 related issues with returning to meeting in Dreghorn Loan Hall, we have decided to continue with online talks at least until the end of 2021.  We look forward to welcoming old and new members to these events.  Our next meeting is on Monday, 6 December at 7.30pm with Alex Hale from the University of Edinburgh Archaeology Dept. speaking about those Iron Age enigmas - Crannogs - where, why, what and when.'  You will find details of all our talks for the 2021/22 season on our Events page.

We are always very happy to welcome new members to the Society. If you are interested in joining, you can download a Membership Form here.
