Door open days

Edinburgh

The Maltings are part of a late 17th century inn complex, the inn itself (Royal Oak Inn) was demolished in the 1970s. The Maltings is today used as an education and exhibition centre while its associated brewhouse houses an archive of local documents, photographs and ephemera. The earliest carbon dated Mesolithic occupation of Scotland has been identified just behind the Maltings and the exhibition contains artefacts from this date until the present day.

The exhibition highlights the local iron industry’s links with the continent.

 GLOBAL CONNECTIONS

The existing exhibition shows the iron industry links to the Russian and Swedish trade ports from which they obtained their main source of iron and the links from Cramond to their customers throughout the world.
