Residents of, and Visitors ( & potential visitors ) to, Edinburgh.
This is not just a web site to thrill you with merely the various beauty spots of Edinburgh but, it is, most of all, a site to provide for your material needs whilst staying in Edinburgh, whether that is on a long, or short term basis. This site has been in existance since 1999 and I make no apology for the fact that these pages are constantly changing.
Part of the joy of Edinburgh is that although the city is rapidly changing and mostly improving itself it somehow manages to remain constant and a place of peace & tranquility.
I have tried to cover all aspects of life in Edinburgh and the things you might like or require while in Edinburgh.
There are so many things to do in Edinburgh, and i've tried to cover most of them but if you can think of a category I have missed or havent covered properly then please send me your suggestions and i'll do my best.

Places To AVOID This is something I thought i would'nt do but i've heard too many complaints about this place.
The "Why Not" night club definately comes into the above catogory. The 'doormen' can happily be descibed as an arrogant 'lot' ( bar stewards for the more polite of us ), a policy that seemingly is encouraged by 'the management'.
There are loads of great clubs in Edinburgh but 'Why Not' does not appear to be one of them and thus become the 1st of Edinburgh Places to Avoid

To counteract the bad press above I think I should point out one of the happier and more enjoyable outings. For a great dining experience, residents and visitors, should take a wee trip to the Royal Mile and there visit Wedgewood, where the food is great and the service sublime.
