So I'm moving up to Edinburgh in the next three months. Do I know anyone connected on Masto who lives up there? :)

Would love any advice you have!

@Eden does it count if I'd like to live there too? 😁 such a beautiful city!

@Eden I just came back from there (visiting for a job related process). It is a wonderful place and apparently much cheaper than London.

@soapdog Same! Just had a week in the centre, loved it. Feels very much cheaper, especially for housing etc.

@Eden I don't have any, but wish you a great time in a wonderful city. Nice time of year to be moving, too.

@sullybiker Thank you! It's very wet and a little snowy up there right now, so I'm glad to be doing it later in the year

@Eden I live in Glasgow. @fitheach used to live in Edinburgh and @jk might also be able to help.

@wim_v12e @Eden @jk
Dùn Èideann is down there.

Southside Edinburgh (Bruntsfield, Morningside & Marchmont) is best, but I might be biased.

@fitheach @wim_v12e @jk Oh definitely. I'd love to live that centrally! I was looking into Currie Hill as it seemed a little more affordable according to zoopla etc :)

@Eden
I don't know Curriehill that well, specifically, but Currie is really nice. Great access to the west, but also routes into the city centre and the city bypass is nearby. Not as many amenities as you get closer to the city centre. Heriot Watt Uni' campus is nearby.

I think @wizardofosmium lives near(ish) to this area. He might have some more local knowledge.

Currie isn't too bad, my sister stayed there for a while and my kids went to Currie high school.
The station at Curriehill is handy for getting to Edinburgh city centre as are LRT busses.
I'm near Juniper Green, I like the area, for me it's great to be able to get public transport to the city centre in less than an hour and I can be in the Pentland hills on foot in half that time.
The pubs in the area aren't too bad either.
Ask me anything and I'll try to help.

@Eden vinyasaedinburgh.co.uk is an excellent curry house 🙂 Was that the sort of advice you wanted?

@yojimbo *fuck* yeah it was, you got any wing bars too? (;

@Eden I didn't spend long enough there on my last trip sadly. And memories of previous trips are ... cloudy. Hogmanay was involved.
