residential areas

by elwka

hi all!
can you tell me which areas of edinburgh are most popular residential areas.
do you know where new residential developments are to be located?


RE: residential areas

by df53

The most popular (and probably expensive) areas are the New Town, Stockbridge and Comely Bank. On the other side of the city there are places like Bruntsfield and Morningside and parts of Polwarth/Shandon (only slightly less expensive). A lot of development happening in Fountainbridge and Leith. Best place to lok for property is

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Visit Edinburgh castle!

by Vanislander

Visit Edinburgh castle!
Lots of history at a fair price, and the views are the best in Edinburgh, and getting to see the sword, sceptor, and crown of the kings of Scotland.
DO NOT visit when it opens at 10:00am! There was 8 tourbuses full of people so it was a huge line. Waiting until 10:30 you would just be seeing the buses getting ready to leave, and have an hour before the next tour showed up.

By the way, for all of those...

by Jennifer_W

By the way, for all of those who haven't been there, I can't blame you for never hearing the name pronounced correctly as all foreign radio and tvannouncers tend to butcher it, but just so you fit in with the locals, it is pronounced:
ED(as in the proper noun) - IN - BER - AH!!
And just because they're Scottish, they don't all like haggis or wear kilts, but it definately wouldn't hurt if you tried either of these while you were there!!

The Writer's Museum

by engeluna

Hannah and I went in search of the Scotland Writer's museum. In February when I was in Dublin, the Dublin Writer's Museum was a highlight of my trip. So the Scotland Writer's Museum was a must see on my list of activities for Edinburgh. This is a picture of me by the doorway, though some light got on the film and blocks the sign above. It was interesting and free and had a lot of info on Robert Louis Stevenson, Robert Burns, and Sir Walter Scott. I love the winding stone staircase and the imperfections in the old glass windows.

Festival of The Sea/ Leith

by zizkov

On the last May Holiday weekend The Festival of The Sea was staged in Leith. Gone now but Leith is still the working port of Edinburgh, berth of cruise and navy ships, and home of the Royal Yacht Brittania (the Queen's holiday cruiser turned tourist attraction). Leith has traditionally been dog rough and somewhat shady in parts, but the luxury flats are now springing up like nobody's business. Intend to post more pics of the fest when available, meantime here is me in front of some of the visiting tall ships.

Independent Cinema 2

by scotlandscotour about Cameo Cinema

The other place to try for alternative, foreign and uncommon films.

Slightly more geared towards students so more mainstream than the Filmhouse (5 minutes walk away, so I usually check both out).

Smaller, with often crowded / full viewings, and only a small bar.

See other places like Indebele opposite for food, or eat at the Filmhouse!
