The Branch meets regularly for lunch throughout the year at a venue either in the City of Edinburgh or at a location where there is good access by public transport. In addition, there are occasional outings to places of interest, again where access can be made by public transport.

RSA members regardless of Branch, may attend any of our ‘self-supporting‘ events which are publicised on this website (below) or in Contrail. (Note: many of the function venues do require advance reservations, your expression of interest in attending should therefore be made in advance, via the Branch official arranging the event)

The ’events‘ e-mailing is sent to Edinburgh Branch* members who have provided the RSA with an email contact and to other members on application. (* Edinburgh Branch now includes members formally listed under H&I)

If you are a new member to the Edinburgh Branch, an existing member, (including WoS) who has not previously provided an email to the RSA, or you have changed your email, please advise the RSA at .

Future Events

A Branch outing to the ’Discovery‘ (Royal Research Ship) Riverside Drive, Dundee DD1 4XA will take place on Wednesday 7 September, meeting in the foyer (inside the front door) at 11:45 / 12 noon.

The tour around the ship costs £7.80 per person. (concessionary) and will take around 1hr.30 minutes at the most. Please note the ship tour involves the use of some steep stairs.

Following the ship tour an optional lunch at 1.45pm is planned at the Tatha Bar & Kitchen, 1 Riverside Esplanade, inside the V&A Museum. (Next door to the ship. Entry to the V&A is free!)

The V&A also has various exhibition events, at the time of our visit there is an on-going exhibition of Valentines greeting cards & postcards.

As is routine, expressions of interest in attending this outing are required from members, particularly those who wish to take lunch after the ship tour, as it is planned to book a RSA lunch table for 1.45pm. It is off course possible just to join the outing for lunch.

If you are interested in coming along for the complete outing or just the lunch, or you need further information, please contact the Branch, email admin@edinburghrsa.com (preferred) no later than 12 noon on Friday 02 September 2022.
