Ireland's got the brews Scotland got the scotch. ..
Would like to plans a trip along this route. BOS to DUB. Stay for a few days (maybe shabbos) then fly cheap Ryanair to EDI for a few days.  Then take overnight train to London for shabbos.  Then somehow get back to DUB for a return flight to BOS using 12.5k avios.
That sounds like a great trip-DUB is still on the bucket list-EDI is one of our all time favorites in Europe-Is this for summer or winter?

Whoa I meant I would love to do the route.  Not that it's in the plans.  Still in yeshiva.  I wish.  Maybe I'll start thinking for summer soon.  Wanna get a minyan?

I was there in the summer-personally i think that is the better time to go because of the fringe festival and the Royal Edinburgh Military Tatoo-which IMHO is a show not to be missed (takes place in August every year)... I can give you some general tips for EDI though....

I looked into staying there when we went but did not find anything religious wise in terms of shuls or food at all-has anything changed in the last 2 years-there is a chabad there but i am not sure if they have a minyan and there is no kosher restaurants and barely any kosher food-(chabad has a friday night dinner but I think it is geared towards the large college there). Perhaps a better option is to stay in Glasgow for Shabbos as there is a fully functioning Chabad house there with a rest, etc.

Seems that shabbat hospitality is available, per shul's website. The shul is officially orthodox, though most members aren't (similar to most UK 'United Syngaogue'. The Rabbi is orthodox. I know the previous Rabbi (Sedley from New Zealand).
Seems that frozen meals are also available at reasonable cost.

Has anyone ordered from the Chabad (or interacted with) in the university of Edinburgh? Says online they deliver food locally. TIA.

Any recommendations for a guidebook to go through for Scotland?

We just took a few out of the library. I don't think there is anything specific like the revealed series.
What are you looking to do? How long are you going for?

Not sure yet, want to learn what there is to do. Smart - I didn't think of the library. Mostly just want to hear people talk with the accent.  :P Will we be privileged to get a TR?
