    • 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!

    • Buses from Kirwall

      by lisaitalymilan Online Now Jun 8, 2011 at 7:50 AM

      Hi, I know the buses exist but I can't find a site which gives me a timetable. Even on Stagecoach or First I need a final destination and I don't know it.
      I just need to know where the buses from Kirwall go to and then I can plan my holiday. We are going in about a week's time.

      I will be calling in at the follwing places whilst on a cruise in July 07. Any tips, please, as to what to do for a few hours just to get a "feel" for the area -very little walking required! Kirkwall, Orkneys; Torshavn, Faroes; Reyjavic,Iceland; Narsasuaq,Greenland; Nuuk,Greenland, Nanortalik,Greenland; Cobh,Ireland. Local buses would be fine.
