My husband and I will be arriving in Edinburgh by train after a long plane ride. We will use a few days in Edinburgh to get accustomed to time change. We want to rent a car (we drive in the UK about once a year) but do not want to pick it up in or near a large city. It looks like we can take a bus to Galashiels where there is an Enterprise car rental. I am having a bit of trouble with the bus schedule and which bus and where to catch it in Edinburgh. The wilds of Arizona have very few buses...we usually travel by horse.
Can anyone help us out here? We would like to leave on the about 9 AM bus on Saturday which looks like it arrives in Galashiels about 1 1/2 hours later.
We want to visit some of the Border abbeys on our way down to Hexham.
