Rabbie Burns' Day in Edinburgh

by brimcc

Can't seem to find a whole lot on January 25th in Edinburgh. Is there somewhere else you should be in Scotland on that day? We'll be in Scotland that week and just wondering if anyone could give some tips about making the most of the day. Student budget and mostly on the fly, so no 2000£ reservation-only dinners. Thanks!

As the 25th is a Thursday, most events will be taking place over the weekend.

RE: Rabbie Burns' Day in Edinburgh

by Bytowner

Thanks clive... it looks like it's a bigger deal at home than in Scotland! Is there any other place to spend the day, like Ayr maybe?

There will be more on offer in Alloway and Dumfries but lots of Burns Suppers are held as private functions and therefore not advertised. The List Online is updated daily so keep using the search facility on there.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

I would recommend doing the...

by scooter3

I would recommend doing the Literary Pub Tour... It is not just a drink fest, but actually a pretty cool tour around downtown Edinburgh which takes you to some pubs and the two tour guides (who are hilarious) tell stories of Edinburgh's famous poets, novelists.. I thoroughly enjoyed it... met some Danish people on the tour and we went to one of the pubs afterwards to listen to the live music that some band had been playing when we had left... Many of the pubs you will notice will have many bands, etc practicing inside and drinking beer... It is usually traditional type Scottish music too and really excellent... This was definitely a charming part of the visits to the pubs...

Golf and Good Beer - Bruntsfield Links !!

by scotlandscotour

This delightful bar is beside the Bruntsfield Links and The Meadows - a wonderful parkland which makes Edinburgh special.

You can play golf on the mini course here - many do.

The bar is lovely inside - like so many bars in Edinburgh. I'm not showing favouritism.

(Notice the flames at the door?)

Union Canal

by Nemorino

I didn't even know there was such a thing as the Union Canal until I happened onto it while I was cycling around Edinburgh.

I guess I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere, which is easy to do if you aren't used to cycling on the left, Here in the U.K. a left turn is easy, but a right turn is something of a maneuver in city traffic -- the opposite of what we are used to in Germany.

Along the left side of the canal is the former Towpath, now a walking and cycling path which part of a cycling route called National Route 75, otherwise known as The Clyde to Forth Cycle Route, which goes from Glasgow (on the River Clyde) to Edinburgh (on the Firth of Forth)

The National Cycle Network is coordinated by an organization called Sustrans - the "sustainable transport" charity, which "works on practical projects to encourage people to walk, cycle and use public transport in order to reduce motor traffic and its adverse effects." Details on their website.

Update: While sorting through some old papers I came across a list of places in Edinburgh where we went cycling in April 2003. One day we went to Dean Village, The Water of Leith and the Royal Botanic Garden. And then the next day we rode our bikes to The Innocent Railway, Craigmillar Castle (where they had reduced prices for seniors but not for students, so my son had to pay the full price while I got in for less), Cycle Route 1, Portobello, Joppa, Musselburgh and Falside Castle, a privately-owned castle where an extremely posh upper-class party was in progress when we arrived, complete with over a dozen fat upper-class cars parked all over the property. People like us, on bicycles, could of course only view this from the outside.

GrayfriarIn 1858 this faithful...

by Aragina

GrayfriarIn 1858 this faithful Skye terrier followed the remains of his master, John Gray, to Greyfriars churchyard. After the interment, the dog refused to leave the graveside. For the next 14 years, until his own death, Bobby was never far from the churchyard. A shelter was constructed there for him, and he was given his food regularly in the kitchens of dining rooms nearby. When the question of his licence arose, the lord provost of the day paid it personally.

The touching story of the little dog's fidelity spread everywhere. Travellers went to the churchyard especially to observe the famous Bobby. One of these, the philanthropist Baroness Burdett Coutts, was so impressed that she was instrumental in having the statue sculpted. The monument was unveiled in 1873, not long after Greyfriars Bobby died. He is now buried within the churchyard.

A film was made in the 1950's commemeration this little dogs life.

BIG SHOWS

by hevbell about Playhouse theatre

My most recent visit to Edinburgh was in order to go and see the musical "We Will Rock You" and I also saw "Chicago" here, with one of my teen pop idols Marti Pellow!!
Although Edinburgh has its fair share of theatres The Playhouse tends to be the place with the big west end type shows so its worth checking out whats on while you are in town. You might strike lucky and find something good. We were commenting on the fact that people don't seem to dress up for the theatre the same way they used to. It would seem that anything goes now. We saw plenty of people in jeans
