Welcome to the website of Edinburgh Old Town Association, which is for anyone interested in the historic heart of Edinburgh, so please explore...

The Old Town of Edinburgh runs from the Castle in the west to Holyrood Palace in the east and from Princes Street Gardens in the north to the University of Edinburgh in the south and covers the extent of the city until its expansion in the 18th century. The Edinburgh Old Town Association is an organisation working on behalf of those who live and work in the Old Town of Edinburgh to influence the way the area is developed and to improve the environment and quality of life.

Our newsletters give our views on many topics relevant to the Old Town.  Members enjoy the newsletter and the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities.

March 2020: Because of the current Covid-19 crisis, the OTA has suspended all members' activities, including the Annual General Meeting, scheduled for 26 March.  We apologise for this, but trust you will agree staying away from possible infection takes priority.

Membership is open to all who live in, work in, or simply just love this historic heart of Edinburgh.
