Edinburgh is awash with great venues to meet people, as well as speed dating nights and singles events designed to help you find 'the one'.Edinburgh has to be one of the best places in Scotland for dating, with it's cafes and coffee shops, every type of restaurant known to humankind, the club scene, theatres and more scenic parks than you can shake a stick at - and let's not forget the pubs. There is so much to do, so many places to go on dates across the Lothians.It's dating heaven - Lothian ( also Lowden in Scots or Lodainn in Gaelic) forms a region of Scotland that lies between the southern shore of the Firth of Forth and the Lammermuir Hills.The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 abolished the counties and burghs as local government units, replacing them with Regions and Districts with Lothian Regional Council taking over responsibility in May 1975.
The Region was responsible for education, social work, water, sewerage, transport (including local buses within Edinburgh).
