Edinburgh and Glasgow during easter.

by Osloguy


I just wonder if there are business as usual during easter in Scotland. In Norway most things are closed. I mean things like restaurants, bars, clubs and shopping malls and so on.

Thanks in advance

most things will be open, some of the smaller places may close but thats more the exception than the rule.

Most shops will have restricted opening times but most pubs and restaurants will be business as usual also some of the visitor attractions in boths cities such as holyrood house in Edinburgh will be closed. Edinburgh opening ours for shops will be a lot less restrictive than Glasgows which usually operates there Sunday opening times on Public holidays such as easter Monday these trading hours vary from shop to shop but are usually about 11-12 in the morning to around 4-5 in afternoon although some of the bigger shops will trade as normal. Also some shops may not open at all.

Hope this helps

HISTORY - Bite Sized ... Stewart Dynasty

by scotlandscotour

1424 AD, James I returns from England.
With new found confidence and spending power he sets about demonstrating the power of the Stewart Kings:
Linlithgow Palace, the great carthusian monastry at Perth and great halls in Edinburgh and Stirling Castles, creating palaces within, completed by James IV (1488-1513).
A navel race with England results in the building of the "Michael", half as big again as the English warship, "Mary Rose".

Mary Queen of Scots (1542-67)
James VI (1567-1625)

All part of the Stewart Dynasty.

More was spent on running the royal households than in capital expenditure on building projects. They were no longer warlords but Courtiers.

This was followed by the Reformation of 1560. More on that later. Is anyone going to read this?

Roslin a little village in the countryside

by scottishvisitor

Roslin or Rosslyn as it was once called is a little village about seven miles from Edinburgh. Roslin is a pretty place with great views of open countryside a distant Pentland Hills. The village has two little shops, I popped into the shops for some camera batteries but they didn't have any. The friendly lady assured me she would put them on the next stock order, just as well really as this charming little place is set to get very busy with tourists flocking to see Rosslyn Chaple when the Da Vinci Code is on at the Movies. You can get to Roslin from Edinburgh by taking the bypass to Straiton Junction then follow the exit A701

Melville Castle

by dila

Melville Castle is situated just 8 miles South East of Edinburgh city centre. Melville Castle is about 20 minutes away from Edinburgh. It is a hotel.
Here was a wedding going on the 8th september.

Mix with the luvvies

by leffe3 about Traverse Theatre Bar

Underground cavern of a bar, seats at the far end but vast area of standing only. Stripped wood and modern, friendly and, as one would expect, attracts all types of people to drink and eat (emphasis on quick and easy vegetarian food). During the Festival time, the Traverse is the centre of the theatre crowd, staying full throughout the day and night. Even outside of the festival, the bar is a popular hangout. Whatever goes.
