The Grand Lodge of Scotland follows the public holidays as set by the City of Edinburgh Council.

These dates can vary from those in England and other parts of Scotland. The dates of Edinburgh public holidays for 2010 and early 2011 are undernoted. Hopefully this will avoid people making unnecessary journeys when Freemasons' Hall is closed.
