What is good to see in Edinburgh around November time?
A group of 16 members from our Golf Society is attending the Ryder Cup next year and we require houses to rent. Where will I find the best range of Ryder Cup Accommodation?
I'm about to arrange car parking at Edinburgh Airport. I have been quoted a favourable price for the 8 weeks I require to leave the car. The options are for the long stay car park or the terminal surface parking. The web site states that the terminal surface parking is ideal for short stay parking although it has quoted a price for 8 weeks.
I suppose it would be better for the car in winter if it was parked under cover in a multi story park. I don't know the layout of the parking at Edinburgh airport and would appreciate any advice from fellow travellers.
We are spending two and one half day in Edingurgh
In one side we think that there are plenty of things to see in town for this short time , but in the other we think that there are many interesting places at a short distance
What do you think about visiting St Andrews or Rosslyn Chapel ?
Which is the best way to reach these places with public transport ?
We are going to be in Edinburgh on a tour and one of the optional offerings is a dinner with a "traditional Haggis" ceremony. I am not sure this would be worth the price. £60?
I am looking to travel Scottish Highlands from Edinburgh but all tours are 9 hours or more. Is there any tours that are only around 4-6 hours that I can get a feel of the highlands/lake etc. 9hours or more will be definitely tough for our group!! Travel date is next weekend!!
Hi all, I am going to Edinburgh in September this year and would like to seek your advise on the must see attractions and any tips for Edinburgh visit. I will be there for 2 nights. Was thinking of going to Inverness for a day trip. Appreciate your advise. Thanks.
Hi There. We'll be taking the train from Glasgow into Edinburgh Waverley on September 3. Our train arrives shortly after 7:00am, and we are looking for a great place to have breakfast that is walking distance from the station. We hope to visit the Castle afterwards, so if it's in the same direction, bonus - if not, no big deal. We don't mind walking a little and seeing places by foot (that's our plan anyway). Open to all suggestions! :) (Also suggestions for things we should squeeze in since we'll only be in the city for the day). Thank you!
Is any activity of the FRINGE in the first days of September ?
5 to 8 th of September
Thank you - Gracias !!!

I know , that I may find it in Internet but a recommendation should be appreciated
Thank you Gracias !!!
I am staying in the mercure hotel on princes street for Hogmanay. Do I have to purchases a street ticket.
I'm flying into Edinburgh Thursday, July 25th at 2330. I'm a single young adult woman and I'm nervous trying to navigate my way around. I need an easily accessible hotel or bed in breakfast around 50 euros. Can I take the airport bus that late at night? Is there a place to stay that I can get to by the airport bus? Does this operate at night? I need some tips on what I should do and where I should stay for a couple of nights.
We booked train tickets seeing a good deal for the holiday period here during August last week. Then we checked Hotels prices near Edinburgh to find it very high with websites showing 75% to 200% price higher than normal days. I require help in knowing a good safe suburban hotel well connected by local trains that will reduce my hotel rate. Considering that we are 4 adults and 2 kids from a family, we will save a lot if we reduce this hotel rate.
Hi, we are going to Edinburgh by car. Do you have any advice where to park the car overnight (for free) while staying at a hostel. Or do you know any hostel a bit out of town with a parking spot? Thanks!
Can anyone tell me please, how much time I need to visit Scott Monument?
I plan to travel from Birmingham to Edinburgh. What can i visit and where to go?
Hi , I'm going to be in England this summer for a summer camp and I was thinking about visiting Scotland but I'll only have a weekend to do this trip. I was planning to take a train from London to Edinburgh on Friday and come back on Sunday. But I'd also like to see Highlands as well, so is it possible for me to take another train to Inverness from Edinburgh after a day in Edinburgh ?
To sum up I'm planning :
-London-Edinburgh [ Thursday afternoon via train (It's 4.5 hours I guess ? ) ]
Friday : Edinburgh
- Edinburgh-Inverness [ Friday night via train ( 3.5 - 4 hours ? )
Saturday : Inverness ( Loch Ness? , Cawdor Castle? , Highland Wildlife Park?, Eilean Donan Castle ? )
- Inverness-London [ Sunday morning via train ]
So what do you think ? Is it possible ? Any suggestions ?
( by the way I'm 16 years old and going to get a BritRailYouthPass )
i would like to know what is the name of the streeet can view northern ireland from edinburggh.i am planning to travel therre for 2 days. which century is edinburgh castle built.
Will be in Edinburgh this week-end, and was thinking of booking a table at the Witchery for the wife's 50th birthday. I see there are two dining rooms, and I want to choose the best. Anyone know the difference? One is called the secret garden and the other the Witchery.
Is it early September a good time to visit Edinburgh and Scotland, in respect to the weather and rain ?
Next weekend I am travelling in Scotland and will plan to spend a day in Edinburgh, I will be joining a walking tour and depending on my colleague I may want to find somewhere fairly local to have some lunch, I enjoy good pub food and real ale. I recall visiting some pubs in the narrow passages around the Royal Mile.
From up by Dunsapie Loch, views south east (?) appear to show what might be numbers or letters on the snow covered hills (gaps between trees?). Is this just an illusion?
I am looking to book at the Travelodge Edinburgh Learmonth Hotel. It seems a very good price and close to the city centre. All I really need is a clean room with a good bed to sleep in and a shower, nothing fancy. Is this an okay neighbourhood?
What ways are there to get from city center to the airport? Is there a train? Bus? Does a cab minimize the hassle at reasonable expense?
Hi. Seasoned traveller around many European capitals but never done Edinburgh. So will be going in November fo rmy birthday with my other half.
Any tips on what to definitely do, what to definitely not do etc
We will be there Bonfire weekend if this helps.
We love London but also love cities what (I imagine) Edinburgh are like. Also is it expensive?
We like to get out and about, have a drink and good food but not party etc.
Thanks in advance!
I;m a seasoned traveler and like to dress like the locals if possible. At a lively 68, I wonder if the jeans and nice T-shirts I wear in New York with my Birkenstocks will be OK in Edinburgh. What do you advise?
I would really love to take my husband to the British Open in Muirfield in 2013. My question is how much would a taxi be from Queensferry to Muirfield and how long would it take. A cruise ship will be in port on July 20 and I was thinking this would be the best way for us to see the British Isles and get to the tournament as well. My husbands family came from Edinburgh so he would love to see it.
I would like your expert advice on Edinburgh. I've never been there and probably won't go any time soon but my parents want to go there this automn so I've done a few checks on the web for suitable airline tickets and hotel deals and found a few that seems to have reasonable rates. The important factors are these:
1. Closeness to city centre without being in a very, very noisy area during night. My mother is slightly disabled and would prefer not to walk very far so a 2km walk at night to get home is out of the question and she would like to not have to take a cab each night (or a bus).
2. A nice hotel.
So any ideas would be nice. Are the suggestions below in the city center? Is there even such a thing? What would you say the perimieters of the city center would be if my suggestions arre wrong?
Here are the hotels I've found:
The Knight Residence, 12 Lauriston Street, EH3 9DJ, Edinburgh
The Ben Doran Guest House, 11 Mayfield Gardens, EH9 2AX, Edinburgh
Hi travellers! I need your help to make our first visit unforgettable.
We will be in Edinburgh for three nights in February. We are two families (one of 3 and one of 4 people, with children of about 13 years). I'd like to avoid big, unpersonal hotels. I'd rather stay in a cozy, traditional, smaller place. I guess a b&b or a guesthouse would suit us. I understand that the best area to stay, in order to have everything at walking distance, is New Town, Princes Street. Last but not least, we are thinking of spending 100-120 euros per family per night.
Is there any place you can suggest?
It is possible to rent a car in Edinburgh and return it in London? If so, recommendations? We plan to travel around Scotland, then cross the Irish Sea to Belfast by ferry from Stranraer. Then travel around Ireland. Will take the ferry in Dublin to Holyhead, Wales. More travel in Wales then on to London before leaving GB. Alternatively is it better to return the car in Edinburgh, catch a train to Stranraer, then ferry. Train from Belfast to Dublin, rent another car, return it to Dublin, ferry to Wales, another car, etc.?
