girft for a good Canadian Curler from Scottland (Edinburgh curling club?)

by aquilaqb

Hello

I am goind to visit Edinburgh this christmas and I figured since my father is a pretty good curler it might be a good idea to bring back something used in curling that is comming from Edinburgh!!!

unfortunatly I do not know much about curling, other than the Scotts must be pretty good at it ;)

I should be able to bring back something useful for a curler and uniquely Scottish if possible and of course it should be "carriable" and fit in our luguage and not be too heavy for the airplane!

Any curlers here with a suggestion what can I get?
And where is a great boutiques for buying curling related goods and equipment in Edinburgh?


thanks, looking forward to visit your great town!

Hi, Hope I'm not too late with this suggestion. I'm a curler and you will find very little/nothing in the way of equipment that you would not get in your home country, in fact most of it comes from Canada. However what we do have is the history of the game and i would recommend you to look at this item on Ebay. Additional copies are available and i think posting it to you would be easier for you, or buy it while you are here. Probably more "useful " to a curler than most bits of equipment. UK ebay site item number 250169987700. Have a good trip>

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Princes Street

by Carmanah

Princes Street is the major shopping stroll in Edinburgh. I vividly remember wandering around, having lunch at the Burger King, going into Menzies to buy some Smarties in those paper tubes (which we didn't have at the time in Canada - our Smarties came in rectangular boxes). I loved going down a side street and up a staircase into some neat record stores. Found some really funky clothing boutiques selling all kinds of things an alternative 15 year old would love. Even though Princes Street is across from the Edinburgh Castle, it offers some very contemporary shopping as long as you ignore the tartan shops!

Need Breakfast?

by EdinburghRoc

BHS Store on Princes Street.
Great British Breakfast 10 items of YOUR choice such as 2 eggs, two sausages, beans would make five + bacon, 2 black pudding, tomato and mushrooms would make 10 + one slice of toast comes to £2.69. €3.97.

Its on Rose Street or go right through the BHS from Princes St to the back.
Oh and here's a tip offten if you buy something they give you a chit to use at the restaurant which will give you 20% off.
The drinks are dearer with a mug of chocolate or coffee it could come to €6.63 £4.49p.

Murrayfield - Rugby

by orlikins

Murrayfield is one of the venues for the Six Nations Rugby tournament. Thousands of rugby fans land here in Spring to watch Scotland play against Ireland, England, France, Wales and Italy (and get their asses beaten to a pulp, hehehe)

Linlithgow Palace

by leffe3

Just 20 minutes by train (main line between Edinburgh and Glasgow) is Linlithgow Palace - or at least the shell of the palace.

Linlithgow's main claim to fame is that it is the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots (1542). although there has been a roayl manor of some description on the site from the 12th century. A fire in 1424 destroyed both the house and the town itself, and it is from there that Linlithgow Palace as seen today has its genesis. It was the royal palace of the Stuarts, hence Mary's birth.

But Mary did not stay long - at 7 months old she was in Stirling and by 6 in France as a result of the English (and Henry VIII) invading Scotland to try and secure Mary's marriage to Henry's only son, Edward VI. The Scots were having none of it, the French stepped in, Mary was whisked off to be married at a young age to the heir to the French throne and, by the time she was 19, Mary was already a widow and back in Scotland. The rest, as they say, is history...

Linlithgow was little used after Mary's imprisonment and death, the last royal Stuart to stay there being Prince Charles Edward (Bonnie Prince Charlie) in 1745. But following his unsuccessful march into England against King George II, the Duke of Northumberland and his army swept into the Lothians and claimed Linlithgow for themselves. On departure in 1746, the Palace caught fire and became what we see today - a roofless (albeit impressive) shell.

It's a great place to wander round in - many different floors to climb, great views over the ramparts, spectacular fireplaces suspended in the walls (the wooden floors obviously having been destroyed).

Opening times:
1 April - 30 Sept: 9.30am-5.30pm (daily), 1 Oct - 31 Mar: 9.30am-4.30pm (daily)

Admission fees:
GBP 5.00 (adult), 4.00 (concession), 2.50 (kids)

drink,eat and be merry

by dotshand

Edinburgh has lots to offer in the evening. There are multi screen cinemas in the city centre, casinos, nightclubs, restaurants, pubs. Rose Street and the Grassmarket areas of town have wall to wall pubs, usually at the weekend filled with hen/stag parties or students and can be good fun. On the outskirts of the city there are bowling alleys, with restaurants and bars. Nightclubs, dress up, usually no trainers.
pubs casual, but some do no allow football shirts.
restaurants are mix of casual/smart
