Meccano Society of Scotland

Welcome to the web pages of the
Meccano Society of Scotland

The Meccano system was invented by Frank Hornby in 1901 and first appeared on sale as a constructional toy called "Mechanics Made Easy". This was renamed Meccano in 1907.

The Meccano Society of Scotland was formed in 1984 by a group of like minded enthusiasts interested in Meccano. We cater for a variety of interests. Some of our members are builders and others are collectors, but all are interested in Meccano.

We have around five club meetings a year, usually held in Stirling together with an annual exhibition.

The annual challenge competition at our Menstrie meeting on May 20th 2017 will be a ping pong ball roller. More details here.

Many our members exhibit their Meccano models at a variety of Exhibitions etc. thoughout the year. Photos from many of these exhibitions can be seen on our photograph pages.
NEW - Now includes pictures from a number of exhibition attended during 2016 & 2017.

We publish a club Newsletter about three times a year.
Back issues of the Newsletter are now available for download. Alternately they can be viewed online, with no need to download them first. NEW - Issues up to issue 96 (December 2014) are now available - See the Newsletter page

Membership of the Society is open to any person interested in Meccano and new members are always welcome.
