Choir Members - Lothian Gaelic Choir

Lothian Gaelic Choir was formed in a pub in Fort William in 1985 and has gone from strength to strength since that time, winning the coveted Lovat and Tullibardine Shield in 1999. An adjudicator once said that we must be one of the few choirs who still all have their own teeth! We recorded a CD in 1997 'Dualchas ar Duthcha' and look forward to making another one when we can raise enough funds. We have sung in various venues ranging from the QE2 to the Royal Highland Show and are celebrating our 25th Anniversary this year. We celebrated our 20th anniversary by competing at the Vancouver Mod.


  • We meet at 7.15 each Thursday in Morningside United Church, Chamberlain Road, Edinburgh.
