World Polio Day

World Polio Day was on 24th October. We celebrated the day by organising a variety of Fund Raising Activities, of which the main one was the only Special Charity Screening of the film "Breathe" in Scotland.

About us


President Ian Starkey 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. 

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 to contact us in advance – simply turn up. You can be sure of a warm welcome.
