Edinburgh Ice Rink to reopen - your views online

Much-loved ice-skating venue Murrayfield Ice Arena is to reopen next month

Alan Bothwell

I was there last week and I'm shocked if that is a venue that has been refurbished. The only thing I could recommend about the cafe is that it is shut down immediately, and the toilet facilities are totally inadequate.

Maureen Scott

Many happy teenage years spent here with maybe a wee bit eyeing up the talent!

Heather McLennan

Loved speed skating there in the 70s – great memories.

Here's hoping the ice hockey will return. Loved that. The seating was outdated and awful, though.

Graeme Kelly

Hopefully it's been a total refurbishment as it was looking very drab and dated.

Isobel Fraser

Loved the ice rink, hope its successful.

Ally Wilson

My hubby proposed to me in the middle of this rink during a public skating session.

Angela Kennie

My friends and I went every Friday, we went to eye up the talent though. Still never learned how to ice skate!

Margaret P Halkett

Spent all my teenage years here, great fun.

Rosemary Young

Great news,I've got kids Ice skates to sell!

Used to work there and in my spare time I would go skating. Iad my own speed skates at the time, absolutely loved it.

Me in my wee skating skirt twirling around the rink. Never though that so many years later I would be living around the corner from it.

Richard Wilkie

I went on a Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.

Joseph Lothian

I wander who is the ice rink disco DJ. I remember going there on Friday night when they had ice rink disco, there was a old man in his 60s banging out UK hardcore and hardstyle music and gabber too. I bet they don't play that music any more, probably that crappy pop garbage.

Linda Hendry Lennen

Great memories of skating here in the 70s

Brilliant news that it’s opening, but gutted not to be welcoming the Racers back!

Do you really want to watch? I would suggest he hasn't changed.

Robin Thomson

Didn’t watch him before, won’t watch him now.

Donna TM Winning

Actually cannot wait to watch people airing there dirty laundry for the country to see and for JK to be as patronising as ever. Nope, don’t think I’ll be watching it.

Alan Dewar

Televised bear baiting.

He’s having a laugh. There are more Kelpies in Scotland than Labour MPS and the one they’ve got is as useful as a Kelpie (apologies to all Kelpies out there).

What’s he been drinking?
