Phone Question?

by ShawnC22

Hello! I will be moving to Edinburgh next month, and I have been looking at cell phones and there planes. I was wondering if there is one good provider. I was thinking either Vodafone or Orange, I will be getting a pay as you talk phone. So any info you got will be helpful.

Look at the deals available. I have found Vodafone reliable.

All mobile deal in the UK are purely subjective, some may offer more talk minutes , others texts or combinations there of. Wait till you get here then shop around as the websites are quite un-user friendly and the best offers are often to be had in-store. I'm currently looking as my latest offer has just expired (12 months @ 200 mins per month at £5).

It was with the Carphone Warehouse, the monthly cost is actually £24 but under their Chequeback scheme, I received a cheque for £76 every 4 months by sending in a copy of that months statement. Even got a nice Siemens SL65 for free as part of the deal. Just awaiting my final cheque whilst searching round for some similar deals.

I chose O2 for a UK vacation but they would be good for permanent use too. The tariffs are reasonable, but more importantly, the coverage area is phenomenal. O2 has greater coverage than any other UK provider.

As a bonus, the phone roams nearly everywhere. It even works here in Canada (although not cheaply).

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Hanging around

by Gili_S

This city and its people are so lovely that I extended my stay here longer then plan, I was enjoying very much hanging around here, I took long walk around the city also to unknown neighbourhoods that unfortunately I do not know their name or where was it.

Getting annoyed at being taking as English

by clivedinburgh

Being a UK citizen is great but most people are proud of their national identity be it English, Scottish, Welsh or Northern Irish. It is therefore not a good idea to label the UK as England as it will cause offence to the celtic nations.

This comes to the fore at present with the World Cup and all the hype that surrounds it. Cadbury-Schweppes have jumped on the bandwagon and re-labelled all of their Mars Bars with Believe which has prompted an unofficial boycott of them in Scotland. There is some entertaining T shirts that have been produced to back this up.

"Greyfriars Bobby" Statue

by Kaspian

Now this is a story that tugs at the heartstrings of dog lovers everywhere! In 1852, a police officer named John Gray died of tuberculosis and was buried in Greyfriars Churchyard. His little Sky Terrier dog, named Bobby, was so faithfully devoted to its master that it kept watch over the man's grave day and night for fourteen years until its own death in 1872.
Bobby would only leave the churchyard once a day on hearing Edinburgh Castle's "one o'clock gun" to have lunch with the sergeant who was responsible for the firing the cannon. The dog's devotion touched people so much that they came from all over the country to watch him, feed him, and they even built him a shelter. A baroness named Angela Burdett Coutts, the wealthiest woman in England, was so touched by the story that after Bobby's death she had a granite fountain bearing a life-size statue of the dog erected in its honour. The little bronze statue was sculpted by William Brodie (not the famous "Jekyll and Hyde" William Brodie), unveiled without ceremony in 1873, and has become one of the most photographed in all of Edinburgh. Bobby was buried in the churchyard near his master. Several movies have been made about him over the years. There's a pub near the statue called "Greyfriars Bobby's Bar", where you can raise a pint and toast the city's most famous and loyal pet!
Located at the top of Candlemakers row, outside the Greyfriars Churchyard.

Water Of Leith

by zizkov

Escape from the bustle of the city with a stroll alongside the tranquil Water Of Leith. The waterway wends from beyond Roseburn via Dean and Stockbridge to Leith with a walkway along much of its length. The view shown is about ten minutes from the West End, near to the Dean Gallery.


by iaint about Rick's

The "complex" has a cool cocktail bar, restaurant and hotel.

We just had a quick scoof and then went for dinner somewhere else.

Well dressed crowd, friendly service...


Had an informal business meeting there this week. Good for that. Quiet at 5.15 - comfortable seating. Not sure. No-one was on the door when I arrived (7.30 on a Saturday night). I was wearing jacket, jeans & shoes.
