Tipping in Scotland

by jorgegomes

Is it "normal procedure" to tip a taxi driver? If your answer is YES, how much? And what about a luggage boy in a 4 star hotel?

With a taxi I round up to the next pound. Last time our bags took so long to get up to the room I did not tip. When they are prompt, I do a pound per two bags. Just how I do it. Karl

To the nearest pound is pretty much the norm but add a couple of extra pounds if you feel it's appropriate. The last 5* hotel I stayed in had only one working lift and no bell boys to be seen, then again I was also travelling light.

And if the service is surly and unhelpful, tip accordingly i.e. give exact change!!

While visiting Edinburgh...

While visiting Edinburgh Castle make sure you visit all the buildings open to the public..this charming little chapel was gorgeous with its original stained glass and many religious relics. Just could not pass up the opportunity to take this photo of the guide ..I believe he was wearing a kilt!

Egg Chasing

by weewatty

Murrayfield is the National Rugby Stadium in Scotland, and pretty dam impressive it is too, also used to stage Music Concerts the stadium was modernised extensively in the early 1990's and is now capable of holding 67,500 spectators all seating. Not been a fan of the oval balled game i have never been along to a Scotland Home match but i hear the atmosphere when there's a full house in is something else.

Being a big fan of stadia whilst I was visiting Murrayfield attending a conference I managed to sneak in an exit to take some photo's. 6 Nations matches take place in Feb/March time, its gonnae be cold, gloves etc required.

Deep Sea World

by MalenaN

The size of the big tank is 4.5 million litres and here many sand tiger sharks, stingrays, conger eels and other big fishes swim around. You can walk in a tunnel going through/under the tank and will then have a close view of the sharks.

There is also a possibility to dive with the sharks. You must be over 16 years old, but you don’t need any experience of diving. You will get training before the dive and equipment to borrow. The price is 125 pounds (for that price two of your family members/friends can also enter Deep Sea World to be able to watch you).

While I was at Deep Sea world there were three activities.
At 10.30 there was a tour behind to watch the snakes and quarantine room. The quarantine room is a room where animals are kept if they are ill or vulnerable, like infants that have to grow bigger.
At 11.30 there was the feeding of a reptile, a Bearded Dragon. He ate three crickets.
At 12.00 it was feeding of the smaller sharks (the rays) by two divers. Well, one diver was feeding the animals and the other looked for everything to be ok, like no big sharks too close. After feeding the divers made a few tricks. Big sharks are fed at other times.

Is it a Church, is it a Pub?

by St_Vincent about Frankenstein Pub

Not sure what to say about the Frankenstein pub, it probably won't make the CAMRA National Inventory of Pub Interiors but if you like wacky refurbishments and strange theme pubs this is a place not to miss. It is basically a church with a pub based on a Frankenstein theme built inside it. One can only imagine the thought process by which they arrived at this juxtaposition between good and evil, but it works perfectly.

Based on three levels, the crypt, the main bar and the gallery, it is quite obviously a church with the pulpit visible behind the main bar where a DJ performs in the evenings. The lower bar has a lifesize display of Frankenstein's monster and the toilets have spooky sounds piped into them.

The signage says that it was established in 1818 but those in the know will realise that that was the year that Mary Shelley wrote the novel of the same name. Frankenstein movies are shown on TV's dotted around the bars and there are two big screens used for sports. The food is good and service is attentive and friendly. Very popular Friday and Saturday evenings.

If you are visiting Edinburgh, search it out and go there, if only for curiosity value.
