Finding a solicitor in Edinburgh.

I am an American moving to Edinburgh soon from the Netherlands, and I want to begin speaking with a solicitor about what steps I need to take to prepare to purchase a home within the next year (or even sooner if possible). I need someone who has experience working with foreigners. I want to work with someone who is knowledgeable and a straightforward communicator. A personal recommendation from someone with prior experience buying or selling in Scotland would be helpful. Any agencies or individuals that you had a good experience with?

Edinburgh in August?

We are headed to the UK in late July and plan to go to Scotland for about 9 days in early August. I just realized that Edinburgh will be in the midst of its festival season in August and my partner is now thinking maybe it will be unbearably crowded and expensive, and we should avoid it on this trip. Is Edinburgh doable in August if you don't particularly like crowds? Are there ways to lessen the pain? [more inside]

Are the comedy clubs The Stand NYC & The Stand in Edinburgh affiliated?

The Stand has been a long-running comedy club and Edinburgh Fringe Festival venue, first in Edinburgh, Scotland, and with later-opened branches in Glasgow and Newcastle upon Tyne. I noticed that there is now a New York City-based comedy club and restaurant called The Stand NYC. I didn't see any indication on the websites of either club that there was a connection. Is this an example of the use of a trade name in another national jurisdiction?

Help me plan the final details of our Scottish honeymoon!

My almost-husband and I are leaving for our Scottish honeymoon in less than a week. Hooray! I think I've finally nailed down most of the details—after many, many hours of scouring the Interwebs—but I do have some things I'm hoping that the Mefites over the pond or seasoned UK travelers can help me with. Mostly transit-based questions within (warning: I'm one of those people who absolutely must plan these kinds of ridiculous details in advance, to prevent myself from stressing out and becoming a complete nutjob), but also a few less-important (but more fun) bonus questions, just because.

Help me watch Eurovision in public in Edinburgh

ScotlandFilter: Help me watch Eurovision tomorrow. I'm in Edinburgh for the weekend for a friend's wedding. I have Saturday night free, and I'd love to be able to find a pub where I can watch Eurovision in all its bizarre glory. I know almost nothing about the town, though--can anyone suggest a place to me?

Can I rent a car - one-way - from the Isle of Skye to Edinburgh?

I am planning an April trip to Scotland and would like to take the West Highland train from Glasgow to Mallaig/Skye. Arriving in Skye, I would like to rent a car. Problem is, I would like to return to Edinburgh through Glencoe or Loch Lomond, and enjoy the flexibility that comes along with having your own car, rather than take the bus. Can I rent a one way car between Skye and Edinburgh? [more inside]

Vacation in Scotland

Bonehead and I are going to Scotland in July, and will be starting in Edinburgh and culminating in a singing session in Cullerlie, near Aberdeen. On the way I'd like to see the Highlands, Skye or maybe Oban. My question is twofold: what awesome things can Scottish Mefites suggest to us to do between July 15th and 23rd, and 2) any appetite for a meetup?
