Welcome to

Morningside Heritage Association.


Morningside Heritage Association was established in 1982 on the initiative of Charles Smith, who lived in the area for much of his life and wrote extensively on the history of Morningside and South Edinburgh.

The Association met for some years in South Morningside Primary School before moving to the Old Schoolhouse, on Morningside Road.   Since the autumn of 2013 talks have been held at Morningside Parish Church.

The Association gained Scottish charitable status on 11 November 2013 – charity number SC044409.
