As a keen hockey skater, I was recently working away from home, and decided to give the rink at Braehead a try.
Now, I'm very protective of my home rink in Swindon. It has a great ice pad, and I have made lots of friends there, as well as having a superb skating coach.....but WOW! The pad at Braehead is easily the most amazing ice i have skated on so far. It was like skating on a polished mirror. No ridges, ruts, divots or slopes, great entry onto the ice, changing rooms and lockers clean and spacious, and well priced.
Excellent facilities, a superb venue, and brilliantly mantained. The Thursday night skate was uncrowded, and comfortable, however, Friday turned out to be disco night, and I ended up sharing the ice with a load of young teenagers, so as a result, didn't stay on long! That's not a negative, just something to be aware of should you visit. It wasn't any reflection on the teens, they were briliantly behaved, was just a bit uncomfortable in todays environment.

Nice shops but keep changing!! Miss a department store. Only really M&S which is fine. Good place to shop for birthday gifts
Over to Soar and plenty to do there. Snowboarding skiing climbing. Fairly expensive but well worth it. Plenty of places to eat too.

While since I had been in this centre but pleased to report the place seems to be filling up again near capacity. Flanked between a large outdoor retail park and the Soar leisure centre with lots of parking it has a good mix of mainly mid range shops on 2 floors with a large food hall and ice tink.

My friend and i are very disappointed with the lack of seating both of us are disabled and from boots to the centre of the mall there is no place to sit when required either by the disabled or elderly people . Where have all the seats that were previously placed gone ?
