How to get there
Transport Links are excellent as the apartment is close to several main bus routes which access most areas of the city and beyond.
1) The Airlink 100 service (£4.50) runs from the airport to the City Centre (Waverley Bridge), from where it takes c. 20mins to walk to the apt. The Skylink 300 service (£4.50) takes considerably longer as it takes a roundabout route and stops many more times, although if you alight from this bus at the Holyrood/Scottish Parliament stop you will have just a 5 min walk to our apartment although we recommend using a phone GPS tracker.
2) Taxis: Are widely available at the airport and cost around £25 (depending on traffic) to get to the flat. Alternatively try calling City Cabs or Central Taxis.
3) Trains: Waverley Train Station is a 15-20min walk away. A taxi to/from Waverley will cost c.£5 to get to the apartment. [The station has a baggage storage area]
4) Car: Nearby access to the city bypass and motorway networks is very useful. It can sometimes be difficult to find free parking in Edinburgh City Centre but Abbey Lane and the surrounding streets are about as close as you can get to the City Centre, the Royal Mile and the Old Town and be able to PARK FOR FREE at all times.
5) Tram: A quick 3 min walk from the airport will take you to the tram stop where you can buy tickets (£5.50 an adult). Trams run every 7-10mins and it will take c. 45mins to get to York Place (the last stop). Alighting here you can then take a Lothian bus (26 or 44) to Carlyle Place and it is just a 5 minute walk from here or you can walk from York Place which will take c. 20mins
