Having not been bowling in a very long time I was quite delighted to find out that you no longer have to change from your own shoes (as long as they were flat shoes) into the classic clown bowling shoes that have been stretched about 3 sizes too big. The bowling itself was great fun for us all and it... More

Great bowling experience here at fountain park. We were 3 of us and enjoyed a game. I thought the rate was quite reasonable and the bowling lane was also upto the mark. Will surely go again.

Having paid nearly £25 for the pleasure, our visit was a wee bit of a disappointment. When we finished our section be game the message flashed up "contact desk to continue" - when I asked I was told our lane had already been sold. We'd been there barely 20 minutes. Talk about stealing yer grave! Next time I think I'll... More

Pretty run down bowling ally's, the computer didn't work so we couldn't enter our names, we had to write them down and give them to a member of staff, there were a few that weren't working, there seemed to be silver tape holding things together, pealing off stickers and worn out equipment. The arcade has trembled in size, all the... More

Booked online for my son's 7th birthday party. From the downloadable invitations to start, right through to the last minute, this was a fabulous party. Great value for money too. Everything was perfect, with our party host Rachel, nothing was too much trouble. Lots of squash and water for drinking. Kids loved the bowling. Great meal deal choices and then... More

Not the best of bowling alleys...run down shoes and not enough lighting though the staff were quite friendly.

Went here recently for part of one of my friends party's! Split into teams and choose nicknames, really large and also arcade games in the building, 20p (i think), for little sweetie machines-you get a handful of your choice and a small cafe selling Slushees and food etc. Good fun for a party idea or day out!

Bowling is always fun, especially when young children are involved and, using the metal shooter thingy, leave the rest of us standing. The fountain park bowling - nothing I could see that rated it over other bowls we have been to, though the staff seemed exceptionally friendly and helpful. A good afternoon. Have fun.

My partner and I went for a few games of bowling. Firstly the women informed us that we could have unlimited bowling until 6pm for less than the price of the 2 games we had planned. We enjoyed 6 games before moving on to pool. Which was great as all the tables are well kept and clean. And are in... More

Okay bowling however ..! I went into the Ladies toilets and they were so dirty and unkept that I wouldn't even use the toilets to vomit .. They had an awful smell and all toilets chocked with toilet tissue!

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
