Romantic Edinburgh

by bgcm12

Hello all,

My girlfriend and I are driving up to Scotland at the end of May to stay in a cottage in Polton near Edinburgh for 1 week.

This is our first trip to Scotland and we intend to explore the city and the surrounding countryside.

It is my intention, whilst we are in Scotland to propose to her. So I would be grateful for any romantic suggestions that you may have. What should we see and do? Is there somewhere in particular where I should pop the question?

Thanks in advance,

Ben.

Hi,
you should pop through to Glasgow and go for a ride on the Subway. I usually forget where I am after about 3 stations and that`s the ideal time and place to ask her! :-) (perhaps between Kelvinbridge and St Georges Cross)
Other than that you could go to the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, Linlithgow Palace and while in Edinburgh after visiting the Scottish Parliament and Holyroodhouse Palace take a walk up the Salsbury Crag for some great views of the city.
Good luck!

guy in the office here proposed last year: went on a helicopter tour and got the guy to hover right over the castle. Castle itself might be an option although mega touristy
Rosslyn chapel?
What about a restaurant? If that is an option could give you plenty of ideas.
If you are the outdoors types a walk in the pentland hills might be an option.

I'd suggest up on Arthur's Seat /Salisbury Crags at sunset (the sun sets over the city and, if it's clear or there's a dramatic sky, it is unforgettable. Hazy is good too!

Good luck

Some other ideas>>

on the Royal Yacht Brittania moored at Leith

at Edinburgh Castle .... as the big gun goes off ... you might forget the date, but you'd never forget the time, but check that this is still happening on the date you've planned. (You never know, it may be getting overhauled.)

half way across the Forth Road Bridge

Wishing you both every happiness in your future life together

If you like walking I would consider hiking up largo law (in the east neuk of fife) on a lovely sunny day. Takes about an hour to hike it but the views are stunning. All the little villages on the east neuk are cute too.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle

by Cool-123

Throughout the castle are twenty-six plaques drawing the visitor towards the most significant places of interest and giving 'at-a-glance' information.

You can either walk from the High Street (the old town) or follow the foot path near the West Princes Street Gardens.

Bagpipes

by dotshand

The bagpipes played well are great. Go along Princes Street and you will sometimes see kilted men playing their pipes for a few coppers, they are entertaining to listen to, if you have a favourite tune im sure they will oblige

Discover the Bicycle Paths

by Debbie1

Edinburgh is crisscrossed by many bicycle paths, mostly converted old railway tracks, which for the most part means you can cycle or walk at your leisure to many places, without crossing more than one or two roads if that, and see a lot of wildlife on the way.
I have walked along these tracks and seem heaps of squirrels, and, later in the dusk, foxes. They are a beautiful and serene way to walk compared to walking or cycling along the roads. Youc an walk along the banks of rivers like the Leith.
In North Edinburgh, where I live, there is an entrance to these paths on the south side of Ferry Road, just to the east of Inverleith Row. If you enter the track then turn South, back towards the city, then at the junction turn east, you can walk or cycle all the way to the shore/port area of Leith, which is well worth a look.
When we first came to North Edinburgh, i wondered why there were so few people on the footpaths, then I discovered the bicycle tracks - and all the locals! It's like a world underneath a world!

Pentland Hills 2

by zizkov

There are numerous trails for walking, from flat (or flattish) roads by the reservoirs , to more testing tracks across the muirs or up the hills. The Highlands it isn't, but there are still some steep sections. The highest hills are around 600m. Many tracks are also useable by bikes and by horses, though the trails over the peaks are generally out of bounds for these - you would have to be a nutter to want to try these on a bike anyway.
.

I hadn't actually walked in the Pentlands before last weekend, but ended up covering about 26 km (about 5.5 hours). Apart from the first part over a couple of the peaks, none of it was hard going at all. Normal Scottish weather warnings apply, and note that much of the area is muir (moorland), very exposed with little or no shelter.

Stopped for lunch around where the picture is - blue skies, sunny and warm: yes, even in Scotland, in May.

The Bow Bar

by St_Vincent about The Bow Bar

A small one roomed pub that caters well for the real ale drinker having six ales on, most of them guests which turn over regularly. There is also an impressive whisky gantry. The lunch menu is simple but does include hot food. It is decorated in familiar Scottish style including a number of brewery mirrors and a point of interest is the unusual small rectangular tables.
