If there are several persons in your party, you may just want to take a taxi from Edinburgh airport to your Inn. Also, you may be exhausted from jet-lag when you arrive - another good reason to splurge on a taxi. Just write down the address of your Inn on an index card to hand the cabbie. Then, relax and begin your Scotland adventure. Feel free to visit the forum often with lots of questions - that's why we are here.

The bus from Edinburgh airport to Waverley is astoundingly easy to use. Once at Waverley, you can walk, take a bus or catch a cab to your hotel. But I think I would catch a cab or walk. It's not very far and by the time you walk to the bus stop....There would be a bit of up hill to get to South Bridge.

you also could take the tram from the airport to the Prince Street stop and then walk the 1/4 of a mile to the hotel. Tram is pretty nice and the staff is very helpful. The fare would be about 5 pounds ($7) one way. A cab ride would be close to 25 pounds I would guess. I have not used the bus but everyone says the bus from the airport is easy and cheap and will take to you north bridge.

i also will be helping out on the czech republic forum as i visit the country 2 or 3 times a year and have been doing so for over 20 years.

Following on from Pam's comments, a welcome from Glasgow. Hopefully between the three of us we've got Scotland covered reasonably well.
