The Question: Where's the best place for Nov 5 celebrations?

We ask a question, you guys answer it. This month: where to watch the fireworks

Definitely Ullapool. Great fireworks, huge bonfire, plus proper burgers or veggie-burgers, home-made lentil soup, cakes.

There is ONLY one place. The WEST beer garden. Hot Sausages. Cold Beer. Not that we are biased or anything :)

As far as I'm aware there's no official display on around Arthur's Seat, but it's a great spot to watch fireworks going off elsewhere around the city. Calton Hill too.

Porty beach is always packed with families doing their own & loads of bonfires too, nice atmosphere :-)

Top of Braid Hill is good for a panorama of the city. Unless I'm the one setting off the fireworks of course – in which case the Fire Brigade ended up having to put out a fire.

@Westbeer on the green, approach the aggressive council man and he will open the fence for you. Shhhh! It's a secret.

Pittencrieff Park in Dunfermline – they throw an organised display every year with Boogie from Forth One doing the countdown and music. It's a truly fantastic show and makes me feel like a little girl again!
