WHY JOIN

There is no typical Royal Scots Club Member: we welcome membership applications from individuals over the age of eighteen as well as from corporate bodies.

Located in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, close to transport links, restaurants, and visitor attractions, The Royal Scots Club is incredibly convenient for business trips, getaways, or even a bite to eat between train connections. Our membership privileges help you make the most out of your stay by granting you access to discounts on our best accommodation rates, a welcoming network of local and international members, exclusive events, and member-only areas within our cosy club.

While the Royal Scots Club still proudly maintains its ties with the armed forces, a service connection isn’t necessary to become a member.
