How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
It's a three minute walk from my front door, so could not be easier. For anyone else, it's a short walk from Haymarket Station into Gorgie Road.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
For Edinburgh standards, it's not bad. I hate driving in the city centre in general though as it's all one way streets, bus lanes and tram lines.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
I have sat on both sides of the ground. The main stand is the only older stand, so has pillars and no legroom at all. The other three sides are all modern, so with more comfort and facilities. Away fans are behind the goal, in the corner and the rest of the stand is given to home fans.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No issues. They use the same G4S people that most Scottish clubs use.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
I ate at home before.

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?

Hearts are currently on a run of momentum, having saved the club from administration, won the Championship title by a mile, and made a 100% start to the season back in the top flight. Games are regularly sold out and the atmosphere is good.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Being so close for me I just walked round the corner and back home. For visiting fans I would recommend seeing more of Edinburgh, which is an incredible city, and just going to Gorgie for the game.

Overall Score Out of 10?
8/10
It's a nice stadium, and currently my local team. I'm scoring them one point lower than Hibs because it's pretty expensive (Hearts vs Aberdeen is £32 as it's category A) and the lack of legroom in the main stand made that an awkward 90 minutes.
