Waverley to Haymarket help

We arrive at Waverley from York on a CrossCountry train. Our Airbnb is close to Haymarket so once we get to Waverley what do we need to do? I’m confused if there are trains I should take at Waverley to continue on to Haymarket or if I should take the tram? Where do I buy tickets/what tickets do I buy? I just want the process simply laid out for me as I will be with my elderly father and baby girl so want to know exactly what we need to do once we get off the train.
Thank you!

Hi, nicoleyearout,

As you'll be with your elderly father and an infant, just take a taxi from Waverly directly to your Airbnb. You'd end up taking a taxi anyway from Haymarket, unless you've made other arrangements for pickup, and it wouldn't cost more than a few pounds extra, if that. The stations are not that far apart, geographically. Plus, you'll save the hassle of finding a connecting train, or making your way out to Princes Street to take the tram.

Best of luck,

Mike (Auchterless)

I agree.
Much easier for you all to take a taxi.
Black cabs are right there in the station when you get off the train .
Enjoy Edinburgh!

Thank you! I don’t know why I didn’t even think of a taxi! That does sound so much easier!
Thanks again :)
