Where to bowl in Scotland?
There are loads of bowling opportunities in Scotland.
One great hotel is situated close to Royal Deeside amidst the spectacular scenery of the Scottish Highlands. This is the perfect place to base yourself for touring Northern and Eastern Scotland. Although first chronicled in 961 AD, it is thought that The Hotel has been in existence on the same site in Glenshee for centuries prior to this date so is certainly steeped in history. We are the closest hotel to Glenshee ski slopes and only a short journey from numerous places of interest. With a roaring open log fire, guests are given a warm welcome by the new management team and their friendly staff.
There are many bowling clubs in Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. It has held this position since 1437. It is the 7th largest city in the UK and the 2nd largest Scottish city, after Glasgow.
The City of Edinburgh Council is one of Scotland's local government council areas. Situated in the south-east of Scotland, Edinburgh lies on the east coast of the Central Belt, along the Firth of Forth, near the North Sea. Owing to its rugged setting and vast collection of Medieval and Georgian architecture, including numerous stone tenements, it is often considered one of the most picturesque cities in Europe. The city forms part of the City of Edinburgh council area; the city council area includes urban Edinburgh and a 30-square-mile rural area.
Edinburgh is the seat of the Scottish Parliament. The city was one of the major centres of the Enlightenment, led by the University of Edinburgh, earning it the nickname Athens of the North. The Old Town and New Town districts of Edinburgh were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. There are over 4,500 listed buildings within the city. In the 2008 mid year population estimates, Edinburgh had a total resident population of 471,650.
