    Yup. Including me.

    AirBnB is the real creeping destruction. One of my daughter's schoolmates lived with her family in a flat above Scotmid at the top of ER for 7 years. They were turfed out last year so the landlord could turn it into an AirBnB. So it's not even limited to the "tourist" areas.

    I've said it for many years. I'll not go over old ground.

    Edit: Someone said on another thread that we should close parts of the Royal Mile to traffic. Why?

    The Royal Mile is full of the $#@! that is driving Edinburgh residents away from the city centre, along with other city centre areas. Residents need to be able to move around a living city.

    It's full of crap $#@!ty poor quality tourist tat shops ripping visitors off, chain pubs and restaurants that do NOTHING for our city. If you lived there (city centre as I did), or are a city dweller visiting, there's nowhere to get any messages, a local pub or chippy.

    Our city centre is already a vacuum. The disease is spreading.

    To be fair that's fairly new ground for me and I never mentioned the useless council once / ooops!

    Stockbridge is one of my favorite parts of Edinburgh. I was in Edinburgh at Christmas time, very short visit so I didn't get a chance to stop by your local.

    And now full of plenty student flats too.

    Pushing out folk who want to move to nicer houses, but still affordable houses out of the city to places like Kirkliston etc.

    It's effect is far reaching. With locals feeling the need to leave through financial or lifestyle reasons, the house prices in every town within a 25 mile radius have gone up significantly with decanted Edinburghers pushing the prices up for locals. And green belt disappearing like nobody's business.

    It's a wider issue than those of us who grew up in the city we were born in not being able to see our offspring afford the same because of globalisation and economics driven demographic change.

    As I recall it there were a dozen or more tourist shops in the Royal Mile area owned by ‘The Gold Brothers’ which is actually another name for the Singh family – two brothers started the business with a market stall and the family is now rolling in cash.
    Confusingly there was another family firm which also owned quite a few similar businesses locally – also owned by a Singh family, but as far as I’m aware – not related to the ‘Gold Brothers’ Singhs.

    I may of course be totally confused. As you probably are reading this.

    People being priced out is definitely a problem. I'm through west these days and can't see myself ever coming back. I checked what my house in Glasgow would buy me in Leith the other day... A one bed "fixer-upper" flat that looked like someone had died in it. I then decided to see how far I'd have to move out of Edinburgh to get an equivalent house for the same money. The answer - Inverkeithing.

    Except pay taxes,rates and provide employment, and lets face it, would they be replaced by some niche boutique shop or would they be left empty? I get the idea that 'tartan tat' is grim and there's an over provision, but there's a % of snobbery in this Jack. I also can't think of one chain pub on the Royal Mile? There's plenty of decent, invididually owner/tennented pubs there. I can think of a few wee newsagents too. In comparison to the new town, it's actually still quite well populated with small business owners.

    It was my suggested to pedestrian it btw. Could easliy use Calton Road/Holyrood Road for traffic, New St/East Market St/Jeffrey St to move across.

    Related by marriage, and all totally minted. Nice people, a wee bit difficult to deal with- when you've got money it seems to be the rule- but all very proud Scots who do a decent amount of work within the sikh community- Guru Nanak's free curry stall is brilliant- and all of a green and white persuasion. Their empire of tartan tat shops is probably too much, that mega store (!) on South Bridge is an awful looking place, but I suppose they'll be paying rates and employing folk.

    Obviously not, or there wouldn't be shop upon shop! They've made millions selling it, there's clearly a market.

    And thousands and thousands of folks all over the world are proud owners of cheap inauthentic $#@! that are a representation of Scotland. I feel sorry for those selling the real mccoy.

    For sure, but real tartan products can be pricey. If some gadgey comes to Edinburgh, on a budget, and can only afford a shan tartan table cloth or a see you jimmy hat, I'm not gonna judge. There's a place for the higher end stuff, it's available and it's sold.

    Nicolson and Geoffrey both seem to be doing well too.

    Get what you're saying but I'm sure if shops opened up in the city centre selling cheap inauthentic scotch whisky that was masquerading as Scottish but wasn't there would rightly be uproar...

    There certainly would be as Whisky is protected is it not? They would be breaking the law. I appreciate that you don't like the tat, I don't like it either but there is no denying that the Singhs saw a big gap in the market and they exploited it. I wish it had been me because as @southfieldhibby said, these boys are seriously minted. What they haven't done is let the money turn them in to $#@!s and they remain commuinity minded hibs fans. I think M has a point that there is a little bit of snobbery involved in this.

    I think there is a bit of snobbery involved tbh. Yeah, it is annoying seeing cheap tat being sold but isn't that the case in pretty much any tourist area? I can only speak of places I have been but of the ones that come to mind are New York (IIRC near to Empire State Building) loads of shops selling souvenirs of tacky stuff; Amsterdam just in the last 6 weeks, again loads of souvenir shops and the one that blew me away was when I visited Pisa and the leaning tower. Loads of market stalls all placed round the walled part blew my mind away - it was so tacky and not what I expected.

    Half of London is union tat shops too. Not my cup of earl grey but the trade in tourist trinkets is minor compared to the issues around housing that people are facing these days, caused essentially by greed and short sighted governments.

    I thought there was a bi-law or something that stated that you couldn't have the same type of shop within three shops or something?It seems to me I could be wrong that this has gone by the wayside.If this was adhered to I think particularly around the Royal Mile things could be improved.For me the two most pleasant areas to shopare Stockbridge and up Bruntsfield towards Morningside.That may be a bit snobby of me but there you go.But there is very little of interest in the outside housing schemes.Why not put a good museum or art gallery in say Gilmerton with say some decent shops and maybe a small hotel?
    There is always talk of new football stadia, why not build a joint owned 40,000 seater stadium somewhere? It doesn't have to be out at Straiton,why not a fairly neutral area closer in say on Inch Park?
    Another bug bear, the state of the streets,I used to be a street cleaner in the 80's I know if the streets were this manky we'd be up in front of the Supervisor sharpish,it's not only litter,it's accumulated dirt and weeds.I'm embarrassed to walk along the streets in some parts.I know it's down to cuts but it's showing.

    Sharing a stadium which will have to be built out of town with these tramps isn't my idea of progress.

    I think we have an excellent stadium.
    Sharing with the Gunts is madness.

    $#@! that. ER is a) a great stadium, b) the perfect size (for now), and c) in the heart of our manor, well served by boozers, transport, and tradition.

    The PBS is a) far away on the other side.

    A new stadium on the outskirts will feel like an American stadium, surrounded by car parks and KFCs.

    Can you name a single advantage?

    Brilliant work.

    No pics of your tongue please.
    No matter whose cheeks it’s within.



    You are a bit weird no?
