edinburgh festival and get together

Hi everyone.

Greetings from adelaide. Coming to Edinburgh for the tattoo and festival in august this year of 2009. Would like to catch up with some fellow Trip Advisor members that live in edinburgh maybe for a meal/drink etc? I have been to edinburgh before, but it was on a tour for 2 days back in 2004!! Would love to go out for a pub meal with some locals!!

I can't wait to visit again.

I am upo for that.

If you want to go for a pub meal i would suggest somewhere away from the city center as it is very diffucult to book places during the festival time.

we can see who else answers and sort something out.

I am certainly up for a drink or too.

Any idea where you will be staying?

Hiya.

Thanks for reply.

I am staying at frederick house from 17th - 21st august and then again from 28th to 30th august. I will be attending the tattoo on the 19th august. Other than that, any night is pretty much available. It would be great to catch up and enjoy the night life of edinburgh with some locals.

I can be contacted on rhopkins@chariot.net.au also.

I can't wait to visit edinburgh during the festival and in particular, looking forward to going to the tattoo for the 1st time.

Excuse my ignorance - I have never been to Edinburgh but will be going to visit my daughter in london in about 2 weeks time and was looking for some info on the Edinburgh festival as i believe its outstanding.

1) Is it on during the whole of August.

2) I might be able to get some accommodation through a client so was thinking of coming for the weekend of the 21st August. - Please tell me where i can find more information on what to do if we are only there for the weekend.

3) Can you tell me the best and most reliable website to go to to find the cheapest train from London to Edinburgh.

Many thanks in anticipation of lots of replies.
