Edinburgh Airport access road

Edinburgh Airport could be “cut off entirely” as calls have been made for proposals to provide a second access road to pick up the pace. Airport news from Linlithgow Airport taxis , 0800-6190575

Edinburgh council housing and economy committee discussed progress for a second access route to the airport to ease the pressure on the current route, which is often clogged up

LKevin Lang highlighted that any progress had so far lacked a “sense of urgency”.

He added: “The road around it has remained virtually unchanged over 30 years.

i

“I think we should be deeply concerned by the fact that for what is a main gateway in and out of the city, we are probably one major incident away from Scotland’s largest airport being cut off entirely.”

Edinburgh Airport has agreed to offer funding towards a new access road

Council officers said the key to progress was a “three-way dialogue and coming to a solution” with invested parties.

A new Gogar link road is specifically supported within the council’s local development plan and was included in Edinburgh Airport’s 2016 master plan.

A new Gogar link road is specifically supported within the council’s local development plan and was included in Edinburgh Airport’s 2016 master plan.

But progress has ground to a halt due to slow development of the International Business Gateway and neighbouring sites.

Conservative councillor Cameron Rose said the council should take its share of the blame for the hold-up.

He added: “There’s a perception that the council has dragged its feet.”

The airport has agreed to offer funding towards a new access road.

A spokesman for Edinburgh Airport said: “The pressures on the road infrastructure around Edinburgh Airport are well documented. Any issue on that infrastructure will cause real problems for those wishing to access or exit the airport.

“We are tackling this head on with a range of partners, including the council. It’s very complex and the need is pressing but we’re determined to ensure this issue is solved as quickly as possible.”

Winchburgh set for huge development

A major multi-million pound development for Winchburgh   in West Lothian has been agreed by Sir Tom Hunter’s West Coast Capital, CALA Homes and West Lothian Council.

Linlithgow news from Linlithgow Taxis

In one of the UK’s largest developments, the joint venture will include a total of 3,450 new homes, new schools and a range of infrastructure including improved transport links, a new marina, a 75 acre district park and 35 acres of employment land.

  • Linlithgow Taxis

West Coast Capital, the private equity owners of Winchburgh Developments Limited, signed the joint venture with CALA Homes to invest in the 347 hectares site at Winchburgh in West Lothian.

The joint venture, alongside a tripartite agreement between Winchburgh Development Limited, the Scottish Government and West Lothian Council, will delivering on an agreed masterplan.

Winchburgh Village, seven miles from Edinburgh airport, is being expanded to become a new town,  while preserving the area’s heritage. Scottish Canals, who own and operate the Union Canal, have been overseeing the building of a marina and moorings in the centre of the village.

The agreement will see West Lothian Council build new schools,  funded by West Lothian Council with support from the Scottish Government but paid for by house builders across West Lothian via receipts from the roof tax as housing is developed. 

Winchburgh is one of the UK’s largest developments

Sfounding partner of  West Coast Capital, said: “Both West Lothian Council and the Scottish Government have played a critical role in securing this long-term development for Scotland. Having already delivered over 558 homes in the first phase with five national house builders, we now look forward to moving forward with many more housebuilders to deliver much needed homes for West Lothian in the next phase of development.” 

In support of WDL’s infrastructure investment, the Building Scotland Fund is lending the joint venture £26.8 million towards the development on a secured and interest bearing basis.

Phase One of Winchburgh saw five private housebuilders; Barratt Homes, Miller Homes, Bellway, Stewart Milne Homes and Taylor Wimpey active on site, with the expectation that many more will participate in the ongoing development. 

 In addition, West Lothian Council’s Housing Department and the Wheatley Group, through its subsidiary West Lothian Housing Partnership, delivered 96 affordable housing units for social rent in the new town centre. 

Kevin Whitaker, chief executive of CALA Homes, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with West Coast Capital to help fund and deliver a high quality, sustainable development that will bring multi-tenure housing, education and infrastructure to West Lothian.  Following the acquisition of CALA by Legal & General last year, we have the appetite, expertise and capability to work on ambitious large-scale projects such as Winchburgh. 

“West Coast Capital has worked incredibly hard over the last eight years to bring the site to this advanced stage. We now look forward to working with them and other stakeholders to deliver the next chapter of this exciting project, including the Scottish Government and West Lothian Council whom have played a pivotal role in the progression of the development.”

doune castle outlander

Doune Castle was built in 1400 for the first Duke of Albany and provides the setting for Castle Leoch in Outlander. It was also the set for Winterfell in Game of Thrones and Monty Python’s Holy Grail. The Great Hall is 20 metres by 8 metres , and 12 metres high to its timber roof, again a 19th-century replacement.The hall has no fireplace, and was presumably heated by a central fire, and ventilated by means of a louvre like the one in the modern roof. No details of the original roof construction are known, however, and the restoration is conjectural.Large windows light the hall, and stairs lead down to the three cellars on ground level.

Blackness Castle goes back to 1440 . The castle provides the setting for Fort William, as the original fort no longer exists.

The castle is long and narrow because of the shape of the rock on which it is situated and it is sometimes called ‘ the ship that never sailed ‘ . It guards the bay at Blackness and is only a few miles from Linlithgow Palace . The first castle was built in the middle of the 15th century by Sir George Crichton , Earl of Caithness , a member of one of the most powerful families in Scotland .

Linlithgow Palace photos , 44 print

This royal palace and birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots became the backdrop for some of the most harrowing scenes of the TV show Outlander .

Depicted as Wentworth Prison, the prison corridors and entrance were used in episode 15 of the first series when Jamie Fraser was brutally incarcerated by his adversary, Black Jack Randall.

Built in the 1400s and 1500s, the now-ruined palace is set among the spectacular surrounds of Linlithgow Loch and Peel.

Sam Heughan tweets support for Trump baby blimp

Sam Heughan, the Galloway-born actor and star of one of the most popular historical dramas to be broadcast in recent years Outlander ,  upset some of his many fans by sharing a Scotsman story on the so-called “Trump baby blimp” which was paid for by UK protesters against the US president’s visit this weekend.

The giant inflatable was not allowed to fly over Donald Trump’s Turnberry golf course when he visited over the weekend. Yet when Mr Heughan, best known for playing Jacobite clansman Jamie Fraser in the hit series Outlander, retweeted The Scotsman’s coverage of the story, it proved too much for some Americans.

One replied: “I guess when that is all you have to get attention, it’s what you do. Too many actors doing this. I have no issue with them expressing themselves, but must remember they alienate. And, it would be better if they saved for their personal circle, not the accounts fans follow.”

But the actor hit back: “My job is portray every aspect of the human condition. To understand each character. To be able to empathise means I have to understand and therefore have an opinion. You want “entertainment”, I suggest you stop watching drama. Everyone is entitled to an opinion.”

Another fan tweeted: “Sam, I am disappointed that you retweeted this. No matter your opinion of the man , you should respect the office. Since you are usually so kind to others I find it strange that you would promote hatred like this.”

Mr Heughan later thanked his fans for interacting with him. “Love your support and debate is what makes us grow,” he said. “Just dislike being controlled or silenced. We live in a democracy. (I think).” Mr Trump left Scotland yesterday after spending time at his Turnberry golf course in South Ayrshire. Thousands attended protests in Edinburgh and Glasgow over the weekend against his visit.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle meet Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe

When Harry met Catriona …..

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle mingled with some important Irish figures during their official visit to Dublin, including President Michael Higgins, Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar, and even rugby legend Brian O’Driscoll. But the couple got to meet some TV stars too. During a garden party at the British Embassy yesterday, the Duke of Sussex was photographed sharing a laugh with Outlander‘s Caitriona Balfe, who stars as Claire Fraser on Starz’s hit drama. The Irish actress wore a burnt orange short sleeve dress for the soirée, with gold statement earrings peeking out from her blunt brunette bob.

Balfe was joined by fellow Irish actors Moe Dunford (Vikings) and Barry Keoghan (DunkirkThe Killing of a Sacred Deer) while chatting with Prince Harry. (Sadly there was no sign of Sam Heughan.) We wonder if the trio of thespians had a moment to bond with the Duchess of Sussex about her former acting career and seven-season run on Suits.

4 Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle is one of Scotland’s most impressive castles due to its imposing position and impressive architecture.

From Stirling Castle’s ramparts, visitors can take in views of the Forth Valley and Ben Lomond , as well as two of Scotland’s most important battle sites – Stirling Bridge (1297) and Bannockburn (1314). The castle is at the head of Stirling’s historic old town.Like Edinburgh Castle , Stirling sits on a volcanic rock dominating the city skyline .

stirling castle tours

Stirling Castle is not only one of Scotland’s grandest and most imposing castles, it was also a real favourite with Scotland’s kings and queens. And their investment in it demonstrated just how much they loved to use it, as well as their desire to ensure it both impressed all who visited it, and represented a statement of their power and wealth. James IV created the Great Hall, the largest medieval banqueting hall ever built in Scotland, and James V’s Royal Palace, with its lavishly decorated Renaissance façades, was a masterpiece of the period.

Major conservation work has been carried out at Stirling Castle over many years to preserve the attraction as a major national and international monument. The refurbishment of the Great Hall was completed a couple of years ago . A particular feature of the Great Hall is stained glass windows featuring clan crests . A number of banquets and concerts are held in the Hall throughout the year .

Diana Gabaldon might write an episode of Outlander series five

The good news today is that  seasons 5 and 6 have been confirmed ( as if there was any doubt about that ), and that Diana Gabaldon may be writing at least one episode.

Creator of the Outlander book series that the STARZ show is based on, Gabaldon enjoys a bit more creative freedom with her creation than other authors and adaptations. Showrunner Ronald D. Moore made sure of this from the beginning — Gabs serves as a series consultant from time to time, as well as appearing in episode 4 from season 1.

Also also, Diana has written an episode of the series: season 2, episode 11, ‘Vengeance Is Mine’. The hope was that she would be able to write additional episodes, but continuing work on the ninth novel in the series prevented this from happening in seasons 3 and 4.

During the 44th Annual Saturn Awards, we were able to chat briefly with Diana on the red carpet before the ceremony, where she accepted the award for Best Fantasy TV Series on behalf of the show. (This is the third year running that the STARZ series has taken home the golden statue.)

She mentioned that production was wrapping on season 4, and that she was very excited for fans to see where the season goes.

We asked her about the possibility of her returning to write an episode in the coming seasons, and she said that as long as her writing and editing schedule for book nine, Go Tell the Bees That I Am Gone, goes well, she would be interested and available.

While Outlander will not be present at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) this year, they will have a presence at New York Comic Con (NYCC), where at the very least, a new trailer for the upcoming season 4 is expected to drop, if not the entire premiere episode (as they did last year during SDCC).
