Description

Find out about the heritage of Riccarton, Currie and the surrounding area with maps, photographs and documents from Heriot-Watt University’s archives

Led by Helen Taylor, Archivist with Heriot-Watt University’s Heritage and Information Governance service

Heriot-Watt University’s archive collections include not just the history of the University - the world’s first Mechanics Institute - but also records relating to the history of the local community. The Gibson-Craig archives date from the 15th century and have title deeds, letters and estate plans up to the early 20th century. John Tweedie founded Currie History Society and his research papers and photograph collection hold a wealth of information on the local community.
