      Hi there!
      I am going to stay in Edinburgh for three days and I am looking for some nice places to eat and some picturesque pubs.
      Do you have some tips for me? The trip is a sort of romantic get-away, we are both students so are budgets are not that extensive.

      Edinburgh Airport parking

      by Dunli Online Now Oct 6, 2013 at 11:40 AM

      Hello Friends,
      I'm about to arrange car parking at Edinburgh Airport. I have been quoted a favourable price for the 8 weeks I require to leave the car. The options are for the long stay car park or the terminal surface parking. The web site states that the terminal surface parking is ideal for short stay parking although it has quoted a price for 8 weeks.
      I suppose it would be better for the car in winter if it was parked under cover in a multi story park. I don't know the layout of the parking at Edinburgh airport and would appreciate any advice from fellow travellers.

      What do you think about visiting St Andrews or Rosslyn Chapel ?
      Which is the best way to reach these places with public transport ?

      Best Breakfast in Edinburgh

      by kehale Online Now Jul 30, 2013 at 1:32 PM

      Hi There. We'll be taking the train from Glasgow into Edinburgh Waverley on September 3. Our train arrives shortly after 7:00am, and we are looking for a great place to have breakfast that is walking distance from the station. We hope to visit the Castle afterwards, so if it's in the same direction, bonus - if not, no big deal. We don't mind walking a little and seeing places by foot (that's our plan anyway). Open to all suggestions! :) (Also suggestions for things we should squeeze in since we'll only be in the city for the day). Thank you!

      Accomodation help

      by csuresh Online Now Jul 15, 2013 at 2:25 PM

      We booked train tickets seeing a good deal for the holiday period here during August last week. Then we checked Hotels prices near Edinburgh to find it very high with websites showing 75% to 200% price higher than normal days. I require help in knowing a good safe suburban hotel well connected by local trains that will reduce my hotel rate. Considering that we are 4 adults and 2 kids from a family, we will save a lot if we reduce this hotel rate.

      Help please.

      Three Day Trip To Scotland ?

      by MintMcCloud Online Now May 7, 2013 at 3:01 AM

      Hi , I'm going to be in England this summer for a summer camp and I was thinking about visiting Scotland but I'll only have a weekend to do this trip. I was planning to take a train from London to Edinburgh on Friday and come back on Sunday. But I'd also like to see Highlands as well, so is it possible for me to take another train to Inverness from Edinburgh after a day in Edinburgh ?

      To sum up I'm planning :

      -London-Edinburgh [ Thursday afternoon via train (It's 4.5 hours I guess ? ) ]

      Friday : Edinburgh

      - Edinburgh-Inverness [ Friday night via train ( 3.5 - 4 hours ? )

      Saturday : Inverness ( Loch Ness? , Cawdor Castle? , Highland Wildlife Park?, Eilean Donan Castle ? )

      - Inverness-London [ Sunday morning via train ]

      So what do you think ? Is it possible ? Any suggestions ?

      ( by the way I'm 16 years old and going to get a BritRailYouthPass )

      I would really love to take my husband to the British Open in Muirfield in 2013. My question is how much would a taxi be from Queensferry to Muirfield and how long would it take. A cruise ship will be in port on July 20 and I was thinking this would be the best way for us to see the British Isles and get to the tournament as well. My husbands family came from Edinburgh so he would love to see it.

      I would like your expert advice on Edinburgh. I've never been there and probably won't go any time soon but my parents want to go there this automn so I've done a few checks on the web for suitable airline tickets and hotel deals and found a few that seems to have reasonable rates. The important factors are these:

      1. Closeness to city centre without being in a very, very noisy area during night. My mother is slightly disabled and would prefer not to walk very far so a 2km walk at night to get home is out of the question and she would like to not have to take a cab each night (or a bus).

      2. A nice hotel.

      So any ideas would be nice. Are the suggestions below in the city center? Is there even such a thing? What would you say the perimieters of the city center would be if my suggestions arre wrong?

      Here are the hotels I've found:
      The Knight Residence, 12 Lauriston Street, EH3 9DJ, Edinburgh
      The Ben Doran Guest House, 11 Mayfield Gardens, EH9 2AX, Edinburgh

      Best regards
