Welcome to

Morningside Heritage Association.

The Morningside Heritage Association is the local history society for the Morningside area of Edinburgh. It exists to stimulate and promote interest in the history of the area and to further the study of this history. Towards these ends it organises an annual series of winter talks on relevant topics and a series of summer visits to places of local historic interest.

The Association also runs various projects to research aspects of the area’s history, and several publications resulting from these projects are available for sale.

The Association was founded in 1982, became a charity registered in Scotland on 11 November 2013 and now has over 150 members, mostly from the Morningside area.
