  1. Glasgow & Edinburgh

    Glasgow Metro Area
    You know... this is what anoys me about things like this. While the Glaswegians are known for their good nature and friendliness i feel the Reekies look down at us with their snot nosed attitudes, i have dealt with many edinburgh folks while i was in business and it extends not to only the 1...
  2. Edinburgh Photos

    I made a stop in Edinburgh for a day trip from Glasgow. I found a very cheap bus fare on Megabus for only a pound each way + 50p booking fee. The buses were very nice. Riding a double decker down the highway for the hour-long trip was certainly quite interesting! Although the weather wasn't too...

  4. Salaries in Edinburgh

    Sorry to post this in the Glasgow discussion but I didn't see any place for Edinburgh. I am a Canadian who has been offered a job at a yearly salary of 70,200 GBP per year in Edinburgh. I suspect that this is a good income but would like a little information on taxes, cost of living, in...

    My old thread on this must have got zapped by the hacker, anyway this is from today's Scotsman: A MODERN lifesize tram arrived in Edinburgh this morning as part of a campaign to win over sceptical Edinburgh residents. The vehicle has been brought from Nottingham for display in East Princes...
  8. Holyrood-The Scottish Parliament

    Rate-a 'Scraper
    I visited the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh over the weekend. I was desperate to see for myself, the building which had exceeded its costs so badly. Got to go inside too. The plaza at the front (the fountains were not working) The highly detailed facade The debating chamber. This was...
  9. Edinburgh-Glasgow rivalry

    Glasgow Metro Area
    I truly fail to understand the often hostile rivalry between Edinburgh and Glasgow. At best it often seems petty, at worst it seems malicious. I'm an architecture student in Edinburgh, but try to go to Glasgow as often as possible. In the last week, I've already been a couple of times...
