transport to Glasgow

by katymac2000

Does anyone know if it is possible to get a bus direct from Edinburgh Airport to Glasgow bus or train station. Thanks

You need to get the Airlink 100 service to Haymarket stations. Journey time is 25 minutes .
At Haymarket you take a train to Glasgow Queen Street - every 15 minutes and a 50 minute journey.
I could not find details of a bus service but train is always faster.

You will find info on transport options from Edinburgh airport here:

http://www.edinburghairport.com/#

Click on the 'to and from the airport' tab.

You will find links and info for the Airlink 100 bus direct to Edinburgh Waverley, as mentioned above, and then you can take the train (or bus) to Glasgow.

www.nationalrail.co.uk will give you train times and fares.

I too can find no direct service. Presumably there is no call for it, the train + Airlink bus being sufficient for people's needs.

There is no need to take the bus all the way to Waverley station - the first stop out of Waverley for the Glasgow train is Haymarket. The first stop the bus makes is Haymarket station.

Even easier than! :-)

Re: transport to Glasgow

You know, when I was travelling that route I seem to think that Megabus went from Edinburgh to Glasgow via Edinburgh airport. You could check on the Megabus website. As well as the airport, I think they stopped in Hamilton - not the quickest trip and you'd probably do better to take the Airlink. However, you don't need to go all the way in to Haymarket. Get off at the first stop - sorry but for the life of me I cannot remember the stop (it is on the tip of my tongue but doesn't want to go any further!!) but it is at a big roundabout, the first big roundabout you come to, the driver will know, there's a Ramada Inn just there - then you cross the road to the Ramada Inn side and catch the Citylink bus going to Glasgow. Look on the Citylink website and you will find the name of the stop in the timetable.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Buses dont stop just because you are at the stop

by sparkieplug24

If you want to go on a bus you firstly have to find the correct bus stop which will be marked with the numbers of the buses that stop here (number corresponds to there route). If unsure check out the route maps located inside the bus stop. When you see your bus approaching the bus stop you must signal to the driver that you wish to board the bus by putting your hand out as standing at this bus stop doesnt mean they will automaticaly stop. You must also have the correct change as no change is given on the bus and they prefer coins.

Old & New Architecture

by Packerman

I really like the old architecture and thought it was cool that the old and new were right next to each other on Princes Street. This street gets pretty crowded the closer you get to the train station.

Famous Buildings & Famous People

by scottishvisitor

Edinburgh has many old and impressive buildings John Knox House is just one of them. The house was built in 1450 and has seen many modifications over the centuries. It is unclear whether John Knox ever was the resident but records show he made a ranting speach to the people of Edinburgh from one of the windows in this house. John Knox was known as The Great Reformer of the Church of Scotland & was Minister of St. Giles Cathedral which has no Manse and is a short distance from here so maybe he did indeed stay here.

Gladstone's Land

by tvor

It's not strictly off the beaten path because the building known as Gladstone's Land is a National Trust house on the Royal Mile, just a skip from the Castle. It's a 16th to 18th century tenement house with a half a dozen furnished rooms with aguide in each room to tell you what all the antiques are and how the merchant who owned the house would have lived there. It was very interesting and well worth a look. There is an entrance fee and a small gift shop as well.

While there we also found out about a traditional Edinburgh "symbol". There was a double heart design inlaid into one of the cabinets and we asked the guide about it. It's a "Luckenbooth" she said, a double (sometimes you see a triple) heart with a crown on top. These designs were sold mainly as pins out of booths in the market, locked up at night so that they could be left on the market area. Locked booths. . . Luckenbooth. The pins were sometimes attached to babies' blankets for luck and they also symbolize love and friendship, basically the Scottish equivalent of the Claddagh

Greyfriars Bobby

by steventilly

Greyfriars Bobby - this is a legendary figure in Edinburgh. Bobby was the dog of a John Grey and when he died, the dog made his home by his grave in Greyfriars churchyard and stayed there until his own death some 14 years later. This is his grave.
A memorial to the dog stands outside the churchyard on the corner of George IV Bridge and Candlemaker Row.
