Brilliant experience here for the Edinburgh Derby. Parked a 15 minute walk away, the atmosphere was vibrant. Fantastic atmosphere throughout, my favourite ground I’ve visited so far. Food was good, toilets and facilities were tidy. Anyone who hasn’t been, should definitely put this on their ‘to do’ list. Stadium perk, they have soft leather spongey seats!
My sister and I were at Hearts for a league cup game with Partick Thistle and Partick Thistle got beat 4-1. Although we still enjoyed our day out in Edinburgh.

History (from Wikipedia)

Tynecastle is an all-seated stadium, split into four sections known as the Gorgie Stand, Main Stand, Wheatfield Stand and Roseburn Stand. The Main Stand was rebuilt in 2017, replacing an older facility designed by noted football stadium architect Archibald Leitch.[5] The three other stands were constructed between 1994 and 1997, with all having a distinctive goalpost roof structure made out of steel tubes.[14] Unusually, the framework sits at the front of each stand, which means that the support towers sit within 10 yards of the corner flag, forming an arch over the stand.[14] The stadium floodlights sit on top of the support towers, angled down towards the pitch, like the lighting rigs used at concerts.[14] The Wheatfield Stand, which seats just under 6,000 people, slopes at just under 34 degrees, the maximum angle permitted.[15] The Roseburn Stand (School End) was completed in August 1995 and cost £1.4 million to build.[15] The Roseburn Stand seated 3,676 when it was opened,[15] but 280 seats were removed from both it and the Gorgie Stand when the pitch was lengthened in 2005 to meet UEFA requirements.[16] The Gorgie Stand, which was completed in September 1997, contains the Gorgie Suite.[16]

I dare say that this was the best fried fish I've had in my life. A large and thin fish, such that the ratio of fried to fish is about one to one, perfect. Read More
