    • Driving from Airport to the City

      Edinburgh Nov 5, 2016 at 12:36 PM

      Arrival June 2015

      If we pick up a rental car in the morning is there a good place to park near the western side of the city? I'm guessing parking then taking public transport is advisable. In hopes of doing so by around noon would there likely be time to visit some attractions in that area? Perhaps the castle if we're alert enough? G-g-grandparents were married in St. Cuthbert's so that's a must. Driving into the city proper seems unwise.

      We're staying in Musselburgh and would like to see something of Edinburgh before heading that way. The route looks quite straightforward but I wonder about late afternoon traffic. Should we wait until sometime after 6:00 PM to avoid rush hour? 

      Many thanks!

      I'm planning a short trip to Scotland and have need some help. Basically, I have a few days in between Edinburgh and Glasgow and would like to visit the Southern region that has some good scenery and (easy to moderate) hiking / biking trails. After looking at Lonely Planet and on these boards, I am thinking about going to one of the 2 places. Which one would you recommend or are there other suggestions? I was hoping to find some info here but there aren't a lot of things to do tips on either page.

      (I also plan to go to Fort William for a few days, so I don't know if there will be some overlap in stuff to do.)

      Thanks in advance.

      We are planning on spending Thursday night 29, September somewhere in the Borders area. Do you think we will need reservations? Any suggestions for a moderately priced place to stay?
