It’s so easy to get to the city centre with the bus airlink 100, just outside the arrival. A return ticket is 7£. The ticket can be bought also online or using the app. In Just 30 min we got to the city centre. We stayed in a small apartment booking with Airnbnb.

  • Visit the Edinburgh Castle – £16.50 ticket pp – We didn’t go this time!! too busy!
  • Visit Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art – free admission unless there is an exhibition. We saw M.C. Escher – amazing!
  • Walk around Stock Bridge area – very nice buildings, little shops & cafe’ and it’s on the way for the Botanic Garden.
  • Visit the Royal Botanic Garden for free. Stunning!
  • Walk by the beach in Portobello – just 20 min by bus (n. 26) from the city centre. We stopper for a tea and a cake in the pub called Dalriada, just by the beach. There was a group playing live traditional music. It was so nice that we went also the following day. Lovely garden and people just so friendly!
