Scotland is a capital of golf and is surrounded by wide range of different fields - does anyone knows a good and affordable club where I could try this sport? I have never done it before, I can just imagine, that during the first lesson I will mainly focus on accuracy and with a pinch of luck manage to hit the ball :)
Any recommendation where I can try it without signing to a club are welcome!

Came here to say the same as Sohan. If you've never played before and just want to have a go, the short course by the meadows is good fun.
There's also a putting course near Gyle shopping center
What you probably need is a driving range, but I have a colleague who regularly complains there isn't one in Edinburgh. I think you have to go west a bit to find one.

I'm planning on going to Edinburgh late July.
Where would you recommend me go shopping? Is there any nice second hand stores?
I'm not looking for anything particular, just trying not to buy clothes which are black/grey/dark. We Danes tend to always wear black.

Nicholson Street/Clerk Street have the best charity shops for the cheapest prices. I highly recommend The Shrub-- it's a co-op that definitely has the cheapest prices, but they have funky hours so check online before going.

There is a really nice vintage clothes shop on Grassmarket called Armstrong, its a big red building.
I also find that Stockbridge has a good selection of charity shops - I go shopping there myself. Stockbridge itself is worth a little stroll, along the Water of Leith and nice coffee shop/ eateries around there too if you need a break :)
For the commercial shops, there is Princes Street/ George Street/ Thistle Street - all in centre of town.

I'll be in Edinburgh and will need to get GBP, where do you usually do the exchange? Please don't say at the airport/in a bank! I'd like to avoid high exchange rates, is there any exchange point in the city and where?
Thanks a lot

Ok so I book online and pay them in the office right?

when I travel (in Portugal A.T.M.) I find the best rates you get are when you go to a cash machine and take it from you bank acc, works best for me, don't have to carry lots of cash about too.

I will be visiting Edinburgh on May 23 and 24 and I want to experience some local Whisky Distilleries.
I do not want to go to touristic spots. Can you recommend some local, not-so-expensive, cool whiskey distilleries to taste some awesome whiskey?
David Crighton , Edinburgh, GBR, about 2 months ago
There is only one distillery nearby, Glenkinchie. A nice, soft, easy drinking Whisky from the Lowland region.
If it's just a general whisky experience you want I suggest you check out the Scotch Whisky Experiance. It's a stone throw away from the castle (unfortunately right in tourist central) with guided tours at different prices depending how in depth you wish to get. Although not a working distillery it provides a good tour showing how it is made and answering the many questions you will no doubt have!
While your in Edinburgh I suggest you check out my bar, The Jolly Judge. It's down a wee close off of the Royal mile beside the castle!
I hope you enjoy your time in this wonderful city!

Hi David, Thanks for your response.
Actually I aim to taste some nice whisky. I will check your suggestions.
Your bar is cool. I will definitely stop by there!
