I recommend that you get on the airlink 100 which will take you to waverley train station. From there, either take a taxi to western harbour breakwater or you can catch the number 10 bus which will take you straight to western harbour. There's a bus stop on Princes Street right opposite the train station and another one at St James shopping centre, opposite the OMNI centre, on leith street. It's right past Starbucks.


you could simply take a taxi from the airport to the flat, which would cost around £25.
