Wish I could edit the original post :)

The correct postcode is EH22 1RR

I do not have prices yet.

Basically it is a field with fresh water and black water disposal, no loos or showers.

There is a bus stop in Old Dalkeith Road, near to the entrance (and the Co-op). When we were there last year there were two buses that went into the City - too far to walk.

Using the P&R at Sheriffhall would be the best unless you want to sit on a bus.
TBH Sandra, if travelling into the city on a daily basis, I'd really rather not move the MH daily, to and from the P & R. :(

Thanks @dwite. Is that two buses a day, or two services running on a regular basis please?

Cheers,

Jock. :)

@JockandRita Both were a regular bus service, can't remember the timings but we didn't wait too long at the bus stop.

No idea why. :unsure: Anyway bus no 33 and 49 both go into town if you prefer the bus. £4 for a dayrider ticket.

The Real Mary Kings Close tour is worth doing while in Edinburgh.(y)

Two bus services on a regular basis :) At least 4 an hour and maybe more from the field gate.

I am not keeping names as yet - I will post more when I get a price and then take names as I get deposits, probably Late January or early February next year.

We were at a C&CC, THS on the Drum estate in June, if it is the same field there is a very regular bus service from just ootside the gate, think it was £1.50 each way or if you wanted to go elsewhere then the day ticket £4, we did the tourist bit in the day, then went back in for a little refreshment and some live music in the evening, the last bus back was after 10, the bus passes a large shopping area on the way so on the Day ticket it is possible to hop on and off
Cheers

Why arent you keeping names????
You have created a new event and we have all said that we want to attend.
The cost and deposit is irrelevant.
Is this going to be one of those events that get booked up by the early morning brigade when it is re-listed and we dont get a look in??
Please bear our interest in mind when you decide how you want to run the rally.
Maybe create a personal list then pm us for confirmation before going viral. Xx
I have a hand written list and will private message people when I have prices. I just didn't think it fair to start a list and not be able to give a price and when I do take names and deposits (after a pm to people on my hand written list) it will be announced here and not on the morning list.

I wanted to put the event in the diary asap so people could mark it in their own diaries in plenty of time and keep an eye on the thread.

The last two rallies I have organised I had lots of names and reserve lists and then when it came to pay up time people dropped out and I was left with unfilled places - this time I have decided that no one goes on any public list until they pay their deposit........ it's hard work organising these things and people who say they are coming and then drop out mean other people don't even put their names down as they think there will be no chance of getting a place.

Two years ago I had over 40 people sign up and when it came to the event only 19 vans turned up. This year I took deposits and then the balance up front which worked out a lot better - but there were only 17 vans at the Kelso event.

EDIT: If you think you will be away when I do ask for deposits you are more than welcome to message me in advance and I can give you payment details :) but not just yet please!

I fully endorse the comments of @Puddleduck.
It's damned hard work trying to appease those who want to attend rallies and keep abreast of those "Sorry's" and "Can't Come" when you are trying to arrange a rally. I'm fully in agreement with him when he says he wants the Deposit BEFORE they get on 'The List.' Lang may yer lum reek, Puddleduck.
