what is it like up there? im thinking for applying for a job
what job are you gonna do
unlikely i'd get it, but I kinda want to move somewhere completely new
real pretty theres lots to do and yr in easy reach of glasgow so idk its a nice place to live generally
a long time since I went there though.
Being a top of the ferris wheel outside the castle around xmas time is chilly.
Not sure what happened. Anyway, I had the best pizza that I've ever had in Edinburgh AND the best garlic bread.
Perfect for the retired rock n roller though, once they've bought their Wiltshire trout farm and so on.
There's a lot to do, like today I went to the beach and got attacked by puppies and was too lazy to finally climb Arthur's Seat and it's generally a really lovely city. It's not the best for gigs, but it gets some good ones every now and then and Glasgow is so close and easy to get to.
small enough to get around easily, but big enough that there's always somewhere new to go. As colleen says it's not amazing for gigs, but it's like 50 minutes on the train to glasgow where the music scene is awesome :)
Plus there's loads of nice pubs, cafes and bars around, and the people who live here are all friendly and nice, hooray!
My borther lives there. Good pubs, good food. AWFUL weather, even for the UK.
it's REALLY windy, but doesn't rain too much. And wind = awesome
Musically its quieter than neighbouring Glasgow but its like just over half an hour but its a fairly beautiful city and pretty safe too.
I think its like the most expensive city in the UK outside of London (though don't quote me on that) but if you're earning their wages that shouldn't be a problem.
I was there only yesterday for Mogwai, me and my gf went to the central wetherspoons and couldn't get over how much nicer it was to any other wetherspoons ever without losing the low prices :P
it's glasgow but a pound extra
I want to live there some day.
the pay for this job would be pretty rubbish though so it being expensive is a shame, ill probably apply anyways
It's nice. Nice to look at, nice places to go and eat and lots of theaters and a good cinema. Most importantly, it's only an hour from Glasgow.
I think I prefer edinburgh rain to glasgow rain. I think it's more committal rain. The wind is good too.
edinburgh rain is more badass than glasgow rain
you can walk everywhere, there are some pretty good pubs but it's expensive and a lot of "arty" stuff if that's what you're into. Not really "arty" in an interesting way. Well a bit is, but not that much.
I guess you get that with most major cities though?
most of the scottish people here want to be english.
I hate this awful accent I'm stuck with.
Eugh, I hate the lack of regional diversity the south offers.
