In our past trips to the UK, my husband and I have flown into and out of Heathrow. But since our next trip this fall looks like it will start in Edinburgh, and end in London, I'm looking at flying into Edinburgh Airport and out of Heathrow. How is the Edinburgh Airport to fly into from a security/immigration/customs standpoint? Is there a "3-day hike" like at Heathrow to get through the airport and to your transport into the city?
Also. I've read in other forum posts that the tram still isn't up and running yet (downtown streets were a mess due to its' construction when we were there in 2011), but hopefully it will be operational by September. If not, guess we'll bus it to our hotel on the Royal Mile.
Thanks for any info and/or suggestions.
