Just a few questions

by ShawnC22


Hello,
I’m planning to take a working holiday in Edinburgh
. I got a few questions for you all. First, for the first month or so I want to stay in a hostel, but don’t know of a good one. Second, which part of Edinburgh?
would you recommend to live in, I’m quite social, I like to go out, pubs, cafés that sort of thing, is there a strong gay seen. I would like to be in central Edinburgh
. The last thing is a job, is there a demand for office help? Some of there’s questions might seem stupid I know, but all information would be gr8t!!

have never staye din a hostel herer so cant help although i see there are a few rated on the scotland page.
the gay scene tends to be around Broughton street
Although edinburgh is small there are several areas around town which are good for going pubs and cafes. Stockbridge and Bruntsfield are good but quite expensive. Leith is up and coming so not quite so dear (although a short bus ride into the town centre)
Best bet for temp work is to sign up with an agency, there are a few so an idea might be to log onto monster.co.uk or s1jobs.com

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Calton Hill and Castle Hill

by HORSCHECK

The city centre of Edinburgh has two hills which offer scenic views of the city. Castle Hill is located at the western end of the Royal Mile in the Old Town, whereas Calton Hill can be found at the eastern end of the Princes Street in the New Town. Among amazing views, both hills offer historic buildings and monuments.

by theskydancer

If you can go in august, do it. It's the time when, inside the castle, you can attend the famous military tattoo. And it's not only a show of military bands... it's a lot more. Just go and seeit for yourself. You will not regret it.

A WEALTH OF STONEWORK

by BerniShand

Take time to admire the wonderful stonework on the buildings, the French influence is very much in evidence, there was so much that reminded us of Paris

this beautiful doorway in the picture is decorated with a carving of Scotlands most famous poet Robert Burns, and is next to a cafe bearing his name along the Royal Mile

its easy to miss little gems like this when the streets are busy and you are heading towards your destination, but looking up above street level can often be very rewarding
another bonus is that it doesnt cost anything !

This is a picture that I...

by Michael_D

This is a picture that I honestly cant recall where we were.I usually dont include such pictures(heck,I USUALLY remember where it was!) but somewhere we encountered a bagpiper, not a person in sight but him, wailing away practicing (for a wedding we later found out). It was an erie sound we heard a good 5 miles away. It is interesting to note that the pipes played a role in war similar to the way a bugle was used in the USA early cavelry,to call to arms, or attack or retreat. It was said that in days of Roman occupation the legions grew to fear the sound of bagpies, so fierce were the Scottish clans in warfare. So fierce that the Romans built Hadrians wall completely accross the neck of the British Isle, not to keep the Scotsmen encarcerated, but to protect the Romans FROM the warring clans.
