About us

                

President Stuart Monro and our members welcome you to the website of the Rotary Club of Edinburgh.

Founded in 1912, we are a lunchtime club. Except for a two-week break over the Christmas and New Year period, our weekly meetings are held on Thursdays from 1 - 2pm (members and visitors gather for a drink and a chat from about 12.30pm onwards) at the Hilton Edinburgh Grosvenor Hotel in Edinburgh's West End, near Haymarket station. A two-course lunch is served during the meeting. The current charge is £15.00. 

We are a friendly and progressive club, well accustomed to welcoming visitors from all corners of the world, especially during the summer months. Most of our meetings feature a talk from an invited speaker, educating and entertaining us on any of a wide variety of subjects. You will find details of forthcoming talks elsewhere on this website.

If you decide to visit us there is no need for visiting Rotarians to contact us in advance – simply turn up, but non-Rotarians wishing to come to a meeting should contact the Hon Secretary at secretary@edinburghrotary.org beforehand. You can be sure of a warm welcome. There is a map showing where and when we meet further down the page.
