Help with route, bus or train

by Cleo5

I want to go by train or bus (whichever is best or combo) from Waverley Station in Edinburgh to Linlithgow Palace, then, in the same day, from there to Hopetoun House (near So. Queensferry)and then back to Edinburgh. The train & bus sites are confusing, getting from Linlithgow to Dalmeny RR Station or the nearest bus stop near Hopetoun House. Also, does anyone know if there are public phones at Hopetoun House so I can call a taxi to get me back to So. Queensferry? Thank you for any help or advice.

Re: Help with route, bus or train

Am suroprised a local has not yet been able to answer this, but I will attempt to, based on the information available.
I expect that you looked at
http://www.travelinescotland.com/

for directions and saw that you can take a train from Edinburgh Waverley to Linlithgow easily enough. It is getting to Hopetoun from Linlithgow that is difficult by public transport. There are buses but Hopetoun is out of the way and taking a bus would involve a long walk.
The road distance between Linlithgow and Hopetoun is about 7 miles and possibly a taxi could work out better and certainly quicker if you need more time visiting both.
As you say, to return to Edinburgh could be via Dalmeny Station which is only 3 miles or so from Hopetoun. Again a taxi would be best. The Hopetoun House will have phone and you may wish to send a message in advance to check that the date/ time of your visit will be good and ask for the taxi suggestion for getting to Dalmeny. I am sure that you will receive some help.

There are of course taxi suggestions also on http://www.traintaxi.co.uk/

The previous poster has given you some good pointers. My initial reaction was that although it is possible to do in one day, quite frankly it will be very rushed and dependent on transport schedules and so on. Both venues are worth more time than I think you will be able to give. When are you hoping to go? You need to check opening days and hours.

Thank you to PuertoLover & Hawkhead for their replies and thanks to anyone else who replies. Much appriecated and both of the above-named replies were helpful. What a great forum.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

uniforms, tartans etc

by willy_wonka

find me a girl who doesnt like a man in uniform and i will find you an eskimo that wants to live in jamaica! it just doesn't happen!

so for all you girls who love a man in a kilt, or in any uniform, edinburgh castle is your place to go! they are everywhere, for your viewing pleasure. sadly being british, they usually have really pale white legs. nothing a bit of instant tan couldn't fix!

Spend the night on Arthur's...

by Dorian_13

Spend the night on Arthur's Seat.

Take time to get to know the city by foot.

Waste hours in the very relaxed cafes. I was a student In Edinburgh and spent three of the happiest years of my life there.

The city is made for young people and the Old Town, in particular, has a great variety of sites, beautiful buildings, cafes, restaurants and bars/clubs.

Unlike the rest of the UK, Edinburgh does not suffer from draconian licensing laws: its quite possible to go to a bar about ten and leave at sunrise (in the summer!).

Scottish Bagpipes

by HORSCHECK

Scotland’s national instrument is the bagpipe, which consists of a chanter and 3 drones. Bagpipe music is often accompanied by drums what makes the sound terrific.
When wandering around the streets of Edinburgh, you will hear many street performers playing bagpipe, especially during the Edinburgh Festival in August.

Lay in a Graveyard- a new hobby?

by engeluna

Was walking about Edinburgh and wandered into a very desolate cemetary- or so I thought. I literally jumped when I noticed a very alive (and shirtless) gentleman laying on one of the graves. He seemed to be napping or catching some rays on this very sunny day. I didn't disturb him and he didn't seem to notice me.

COCKBURN STREET

by hevbell about anywhere on Cockburn Street

This is a street rather than a shop. It has smaller stores than the main shopping streets and tends to be a bit more bohemian or arty than other areas. There are a couple of music stores - Avalanche & Fopp, several bright looking clothes store/boutiques, several restaurants and a little shop called Cutie House which has lots of Sanrio & other character led gifts etc.

If you're looking for touristy tartan stuff then don't come here
