The Wishart Lunch 

This year we will be back at the Royal Scots Club, Edinburgh for our Wishart Lunch (pictured below) in Edinburgh's New Town. Some may recall our visits there in 2013 and 2014, when Jack Wishart was the host. This year, a booking was made by Jack, but sadly he died in September. So, we plan to meet again on Wednesday 18 November, to commemorate Jack's life. You can find reviews and sample menus

The Royal Scots Club is located in the heart of Edinburgh's New Town, at 29 Abercromby Place, Edinburgh EH3 6QE and is close to the Edinburgh bus terminus. It is also about 10 minutes walk from Waverley Station and the Airport Bus terminus.

The 2015 Wishart Lunch is on Wednesday 18th November. We will meet at about 12 noon, departing at around 3 pm. If anyone is interested in combining lunch with family research at the Scottish Genealogy Society , please contact us and we can sign you in as guests if necessary.

The lunch should cost around £20 for three courses, as illustrated below. The price includes coffee but does not include drinks which are available as extras.
