Visit Stirling Castle – top tourist attraction

Stirling Castle is one of the top tourist attractions in central Scotland . The castle features the Royal Palace , the Great Hall and the castle.

Update – November

Stirling Castle has been named Scotland’s best visitor attraction at the inaugural 2016 Scottish and Outdoor Leisure Awards. The castle, which attracts about 460,000 visitors per year, beat competitors including Edinburgh Zoo and Dynamic Earth.

The castle’s executive manager Liz Grant said winning the award was a “wonderful achievement”.

She said: “Scotland’s heritage attractions, such as Stirling Castle, form an important part of the country’s wider tourism and leisure offering and it’s great to see this recognised.

“This accolade is made doubly special as it is initially voted for by members of the public and our visitors.”
If you go into the Great Hall you can take a seat at the top table and picture yourself as the King or Queen of Scotland .

‘ So let us pass … to the ports of Sterling ; where stands a beautiful and embellished Castle, elevated on the precipice of an impregnable rock , that commands the vallies ( as well as the town ) and all those habitable parts about it … ‘- Richard Franck , Northern Memoirs , 1656

 Stirling Castle is built on the volcanic rock high above the town. From the castle you can see Stirling Bridge and the Wallace Monument.

It has been said that whoever controlled Stirling castle controlled Scotland because of its strategic position.A Roman Fort, built on castle rock, was replaced by a new castle at the command of King Alexander I.At the end of the 13th century the castle was rebuilt in stone , because of its strategic importance and the protection it offered.

In 1297 the Scottish forces of William Wallace gathered at Stirling Bridge , in front of the castle ,and overcame the English in the most notorious defeat ever suffered by an English army. In 1313 Edward Bruce (brother of the would-be Scottish King) blockaded the fortress and forced King Edward II to meet King Robert The Bruce’s forces at Bannockburn. The heavily outnumbered Scottish forces inflicted a stunning defeat upon the English and the castle was surrendered to King Robert.

In 1452 Stirling was the site of the murder of William, 8th Earl of Douglas by King James II. A stained glass window bearing the Douglas Arms now overlooks “Douglas Garden.”

On the 9th of September 1543, the infant Mary , Queen of Scots , born in nearby Linlithgow Palace ,was crowned in the chapel royal at Stirling.

There are supposed to be over 1000 ghosts in Stirling Castle , the most famous of all being the Green Lady.

Edinburgh Airport delays in security hall continue

Edinburgh Airport‘s £25 million new security hall continues to cause delays to fliers in its first few months . It has six lanes compared with the previous 12, but the airport describes them as “high performance” because they separate passengers with bags that need manual searches.
Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has become the latest high-profile passenger to criticise Edinburgh Airport delays at the security check-in .

She tweeted: “This is maybe the 4th or 5th time I’ve been through the new security @EDI_Airport – never ceases to amaze me how terrible it is. Useless.”
Passengers are advised to allow plenty of time to get through security at the airport .

Edinburgh Airport delays ,transfers

The exchange came a week after Dragons’ Den star Duncan Bannatyne condemned the “pretty bad system” at Scotland’s busiest airport.

Scotch Whisky Association chief executive David Frost also tweeted: “Thank you Ruth for saying what so many frequent travellers think. It just doesn’t seem to be improving.”

Fellow passenger Stewart Mackinlay tweeted: “Edinburgh travel  used to be great up until they moved security. Absolute shambles now.”

An airport spokesman said: “Ruth clearly wasn’t happy with her experience through the security hall and we apologised for what she viewed as a bad experience. We take on board all passenger feedback as we continue to strive to improve the overall passenger journey throughout the terminal.”

The Helix Park is a major attraction if you visit Falkirk , with   27 kilometres ( 17 miles ) of cycleways and footpaths , making it an ideal resort for families as well as walkers and cyclists. The Park is on the route of the new John Muir Way which goes from Dunbar , Muir’s home town , to the west coast of Scotland .  The Helix Park in Grangemouth covers a greenspace of almost 300 hectares. Opening up Scotland’s canal network, the Helix will also offer an outdoor recreational area filled with woodland, park, watersports lagoon, pathways, cycleways, and the iconic 30 metre high landmark sculptures, the Kelpies. A taxi from Edinburgh to the Kelpies takes about 30 minutes from the airport .

The aim of the project is to transform under-used land between Falkirk and Grangemouth into a thriving urban greenspace , “The Helix”. This includes a performance area, on which large scale events can be held, facilities for watersports provided by the construction of a large lagoon, all surrounded by play areas and high quality pathways.
The Kelpies will be a major tourist attraction in the same way the Falkirk Wheel is , but with no cafe or restaurant facilities visitors may spend little or nothing in the area . The performance area,  which could host large scale events ,  has potential to bring in revenue to the area  , although it is not clear just how much .  Callendar Park  used to host the Big in Falkirk music and arts festival . Recently Falkirk stadium has hosted concerts by Elton John and Rod Stewart .
The final element of the Helix is giant new 
playpark. A set of 
giant wooden tepee-like structures making up the adventure zone will tower over the park.

Councillors were told the Helix Park is considered a “destination” for play and the design had to show it could cope with a large volume of use from children aged from three to 14, be as iconic as the park itself and the Kelpies, use materials in keeping with the park which were also durable and be innovative.

Rhona Geisler, director of development services, said: “This will be one of the prime play areas in Scotland and it is expected to be widely used.

“There was a lot of community consultation and feedback about what would be required.

“This product has been selected because of durability and is expected to last for 40 years.”

She added it is hoped the project, which is being part-funded by sportscotland, will be a “great” attraction for youngsters.

The Kelpies  in the Helix Park opened to the public in April  . The park opened with a  night-time artworks exhibition on the theme of Scotland as HOME with spectacular light, sound and flame display, by Groupe F, around Andy Scott’s iconic new cultural landmark. The aim is to provide an iconic landmark and tourist attraction for Falkirk . Drivers on the M9 can’t miss the 30 metre high sculptures as they drive past .

A spectacular night-time arts event called HOME launched both the opening of the John Muir Way and the international launch of The Kelpies prior to their opening to the public . On two evenings, 17th and 18th April, a selection of one-off, specially-commissioned night-time artworks illuminated Helix Park, as thousands gathered round the iconic Kelpies for an extraordinary animation of the colossal 300 tonne, 30 metre-high sculptures backed by a pulsating soundtrack.

Groupe F – the pyrotechnic maestros who worked at Big in Falkirk as well as the Millennium illumination of the Eiffel Tower – brought the monuments to horse-powered heritage to life with a dazzling light, flame and sound performance.

Funding was provided by the Big Lottery Fund Living Landmarks programme. In 2005 the Helix project was awarded one of the top four prizes, which kick-started the £43 million project. The plans include a new 950-yard (870 m) section of canal, which joins the river below the four fixed bridges at a new sea lock. A new bridge under the M9 motorway has been constructed by cut and cover methods, and a lift bridge has been inserted into the A905 road. Two high-pressure oil pipelines which cross the area to feed the refinery at Grangemouth have been re-routed .

Edinburgh Airport reports increase in passenger numbers for May

Edinburgh Airport has consolidated its position as the busiest airport in Scotland with its report of a 3.5 per cent increase in May passenger numbers. The airport entrance can get quite congested from about six in the morning because of passengers arriving for early morning flights . A transfer to Edinburgh Airport from Falkirk takes about half an hour. Phone 07576-127097 for transfer bookings.

The airport, owned by Global Infrastructure Partners, said a total of 937,093 passengers passed through its terminals last month.

International passenger numbers are reported to have risen 5.7 per cent year-on-year to 517,543 in total, which the airport said was down to the launch of a number of new routes.

New routes launched in May included three new long-haul destinations linking Edinburgh Airport with Chicago and Philadelphia in the US and Doha in Qatar.

The airport said domestic passenger numbers rose by 0.9 per cent in May from to 419,550 in total.

Chief executive Gordon Dewar said May was “a tremendous month” the airport.

“We enjoyed two of our most successful weeks ever when we launched four international airline routes, something which we’ve never experienced before,” he said.

“We worked hard with our city partners to deliver Edinburgh’s first Middle Eastern route and we’re looking forward to a successful partnership with Qatar Airways who are operating Scotland’s first scheduled Dreamliner.

“The success of these new routes will enhance our global connectivity and ensure we continue to provide our passengers with the best choice possible.

“With the school summer holidays just around the corner, coupled with the Ryder Cup and Edinburgh Festival, we’re looking forward to welcoming many thousands of passengers through our airport over the coming weeks.”

Flybe announces new daily flights to London City airport

Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline, has  signed a five-year agreement with London City Airport which will see the introduction of a competitively priced route from Edinburgh Airport to the heart of London. This means Flybe will now operate 10 direct services from Edinburgh.  The airline has also announced services from London City to Inverness, Dublin, Belfast City and Exeter.

From  October 2014, Flybe will offer four times daily services between the two cities, which includes  flights arriving in London before 9am for under £50 .

Flybe expects the new route will appeal particularly to those travelling for business to and from the City of London and Canary Wharf whose travel plans are time-critical and who will appreciate the reduced transfer times compared to flying to or from West Sussex or Bedfordshire. London City airport is conveniently located in the heart of the financial capital with connections offered every ten minutes by Docklands Light Railway, meaning that passengers can be in Canary Wharf in 12 minutes – and, via the London Underground, in Westminster in just 24.

Saad Hammad, Flybe’s Chief Executive Officer, said:

“We’re delighted to announce this brand new affordable and competitively priced service between Edinburgh and London City airport.  Today’s news is a significant landmark in the re-birth of Flybe.  The decision to re-enter the London market at its most convenient airport follows a rigorous profitability analysis utilising our strict ‘Route Assessment Model’.

“We have taken into consideration how appealing London City is for business travellers looking to be in central London in time for morning meetings, as well as getting home in time to put the kids to bed.”

“Flybe is today already connecting over 7 million passengers a year throughout the UK and Europe.  With this new major London connection from Inverness, we are not only cementing our position as Europe’s largest regional airline but also upholding our customer promise to be significantly faster than rail or road – ‘The Fastest Way from A to Flybe’.”

Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive, Edinburgh Airport, said:

“Air travel remains the best way for Scots to access London and we’re delighted to see Flybe announce this new service to London City Airport.

“We will grow as an airport by providing our passengers with choice.  It is fantastic to be continuing to do that with a strong Flybe brand.

“We look forward to working with the new team to provide even more choice for our passengers.”

Colin Keir MSP, Edinburgh Western Constituency, said:

“I’m delighted to see that Flybe will be offering another alternative service to London. This shows confidence in Edinburgh and I wish them great success.”

Edinburgh Airport flies the flight fantastic

Edinburgh Airport has stunned visitors by lighting the control tower  in violet ahead of a rebranding.

Airport chiefs have stated the colour change could be a glimpse into  the rebrand which is  revealed to the public today at Edinburgh Castle.

“We changed the colour on the tower as a little teaser for the public, and also because it’s coming up to Christmas,” said airport spokesman Gordon Robertson.

“We wanted to build up anticipation and excitement about the changes that are being made. The rebrand is needed, we’ve been working very hard in the six months since it was purchased by new owners and we’re all very excited.”

The airport was bought by GIP in the summer and numerous improvements have been made since then. The car park has been totally resurfaced. The controversial drop-off charge of £1 is still in place causing compaints from Airport shuttle companoes in Falkirk. Critics have said that it is a blatant ripoff to charge customers for using the airport. There is no sign of the airport chiefs changing their mind about the charge.

The airport was sold in April to Global Infrastructure Partners, after the Competition Commission ruled BAA had to sell either Edinburgh or Glasgow.

Former managing director of Edinburgh Airport, Gordon Dewar, has been appointed chief executive officer. Mr Dewar is currently CEO of Bahrain International Airport and will rejoin the team at Edinburgh in the summer.

The airport’s current managing director, Jim O’Sullivan, has agreed to continue in his role until then. Edinburgh Airport refused to say what post Mr O’Sullivan was moving to.

Competitive player Michael McGhee, Global Infrastructure Partners partner, said: “Gordon is an outstanding airport executive, with relevant experience of Edinburgh Airport. “We are pleased to have secured his return and look forward to supporting him and his team as they begin the important job of establishing Edinburgh Airport as a more dynamic, competitive player in the global aviation industry.”

He added: “It is important to acknowledge the important role played by current airport managing director, Jim O’Sullivan, who has steered his team through the sale process with the highest levels of professionalism and focus.

“He will leave Edinburgh Airport in good shape, and with our best wishes.”

Gordon Dewar, who was managing director of Edinburgh Airport between 2008 and 2010, said: “Edinburgh is my home city, and I am excited to be returning to one of the most important jobs in the capital. The challenge of leading the airport and the team into a new era of competition and growth is an irresistible one, and very different to the role I once played in BAA. “Edinburgh Airport’s future, its plans and its identity, will all be shaped in Edinburgh, and our decisions will only be influenced by what is good for Edinburgh Airport, and the city and country we serve.”
