    • 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!

      Left luggage in Falkirk

      by kevarms Online Now Jul 29, 2007 at 11:58 PM

      Further to my earlier question about stopping off to see the Falkirk Wheel when travelling between Stirling and Edinburgh. I've just realised we will have a heavy bag with us!!!
      Is there anywhere we can leave it while we are visiting the wheel? I've checked the train stations and none of them seem to have left luggage facilities. :(

    • Bus to Falkirk Wheel and Callender House

      by cathy9510usa Online Now Sep 7, 2006 at 6:11 AM

      Hi,

      I'm making a day trip by train to Falkirk arriving at Grahamston Station and leaving from High Street Station. I'd like to take a bus to the Falkirk Wheel and, if I have time, see the Callender House. I wouldn't mind walking to the latter from the center of town if that's possible. Can anyone tell me if there are buses to these sites? Thank you very much.
