How to go to IKEA Edinburgh ?

by kluk01

Hi All,

My daughter is going to stay at the Hall of residence at Queen Margaret University Musselburgh, she needs to buy pot and pan for her own use.

Any idea where to buy pot & pan near Musselburgh or take what no. of bus from QMU to Ikea or any bus from city centre to there.

Many thanks

to get to Ikea from Musselburgh she should get the service 15 in the centre of the town. Journey will be about an 40 mins to an hour depending on time of day.

As far as pots and pans are concerned there are various supermarket chains around the area, Tesco, Asda, Morrisons where she can get cheap and cheerful stuff.

Asda, Argos, In-Store and Tesco are much closer to QMU than IKEA

There is also a Woolworths Clearnace centre right beside QMU which will also be cheaper.

From Princes street ( North side ) take 47 or X47 to Penicuik ( don't take no. 37 ) and it stops just past IKEA. Ask the driver to stop when he gets there. I don't think the no 15 goes direct to IKEA from Musselburgh.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

take your time. It's so easy...

by HarleyGus

take your time. It's so easy to get caught up in the tourist rush that you don't experience the real Edinburgh. Find Victoria Street and wander through some of the little shops. Have lunch at Gennaro's . Meet the lady (originally from Canada) who runs the little lace shop. Take a picture of the blue Registry doors that are so obvious against the stone India buildings. Go to Hollyrood Palace late in the afternoon when most of the tourists are gone and take a leisurely walk through the gardens. See if you can find the deer. Getting married in Duddingston Kirk whose motto is (I'm not making this up!), 'Serving the community since 1142.' There's just nothing like getting married in a 900-year-old church to provide a lifetime of memories. The church, the people, and the cities of Duddingston and Edinburgh will always hold a special place in our hearts. It is truly the original magical kingdom of middle earth.

Battered Mars Bar

by brummielaura

Battered Mars bars are a type of food you can only find in Scotland.

It sounds totally weird, I admit that, and the first time I went to Edinburgh I didn't try one.

The second time though, I gave it a go. And I found that battered Mars bars are delicious! Basically, it's a Mars bar deep fried in batter (a bit like the fish in 'fish and chips'). It really works. The chocolate melts inside and it's really gooey and moreish, contrasting nicely with the crisp batter.


You can get battered Mars bars at most chippies.

About 30 minutes by bus from Edinburgh, Linlithgow Palace is set in beautiful surroundings overlooking Linlithgow Loch.

(nb: last ticket issued 45 minutes before closing)

By car -- Linlithgow is between Edinburgh and Stirling, off the M8 motorway, on the A803.

By train - Linlithgow is on the main line between Edinburgh and Glasgow so services are frequent.

By bus - 38 bus from St. Andrew Square

Come to a ceilidh

by wrongbus

Clubbing's all very well but you should try a bit of ceilidh (pronounced cayley) dancing if you really want to work up a sweat. Learning the steps of some of the most popular Scottish country dances requires the concentration of a member of the Red Arrows display team in a snowstorm. Fortunately there are also regular weekend ceilidhs (Highland parties) in the city where novices are encouraged to talked through the routines and even if they never quite master the proper pas-de-basque (a complex sort of Caledonian hop, skip and jump) nobody really cares. Try these ceilidh places in the city: the West End Hotel, 35 Palmerston Place (00131 225 3656), the Assembly Rooms, George Street (00131 220 4349), Caledonian Brewery, Slateford Road (01698 385251); the Tron Ceilidh House, 9 Hunter Square. (00131 226 0931). If you're going to wear a kilt just remember you may end up skidding across the floor with your feet in the air.
