How do I join?

Club membership is open to all. The club has a large active membership, which is currently around 170. Most club members live in or around Edinburgh, but a small number are scattered throughout the rest of the UK and beyond.

To join, come along to the Thursday pub nights or email membership@jacobitesmc.co.uk for details about joining by post.

For new members wishing to join after the 1st of July, there is a special rate of £35 for 15 months or £25 for the unwaged, from July until September of the following year.
