from South Queensferry to Edinburgh

by LINDAZAW

Arriving in South Queensferry on a cruise ship in August. The bus from the ship to Edinburgh is expensive. Is there a better and cheaper way to get to Edinburgh

Re: from South Queensferry to Edinburgh

by leics

Do you mean the organised ship excursion is expensive?

South Queensferry (also called Queensferry) is quite some way from Edinburgh.

The journeyplanner on http://www.travelinescotland.com/welcome.do will give you travel options for your expected times/day (43 and X43 bus). Journey time by bus is around 40 minutes, timetables from the site.

You can also go by train, if you walk/take a taxi to Dalmeny station (about 10 minutes from Queensferry town centre). www.nationalrail.co.uk will give you times, details and fares. Trains take from 20 minutes, depending on train time, one-way fare is from 3.60GBP.

I would suggest that taking a taxi then the train is probably the best option.....but do allow plenty of time for your return to the ship (if that is what you are doing). Ships don't wait.

Cruise ship to shore by tender. Tender station Hawes Pier.
Options taxi, train or bus. Probably taxi is out for you.
The train is a hike up the hill once up the hill this is probably the easiest : Dalmeny Station.

The Bus a flat walk along the front, but not so easy to find the stops.
http://www.firstgroup.com/
You want Service Number 43: EDINBURGH - SOUTH QUEENSFERRY/LINLITHGOW/BO'NESS Via Barnton - Dalmeny

Open GOOGLE MAPS and put in this address for where you land. You can see the satellite view of the pier and bus stops as well as the railway station at South Queensferry, Hawes Pier

ZOOM in and you should see the bus stops. And Dalmeny station.

Travel Tips for Edinburgh

Edinburgh is the capital of...

by Anya_D

Edinburgh is the capital of Scotland, and it is important you see it. It is comparatively small: only about 500,000 people live there. The center of the city is gorgeous. You must see Edinburgh Castle, Camera Obscura is also a place of interest, Prince's Gardens are beautiful, Holyrood castle (the royal residence), and other many beautiful sites, which I did not managed to see because of the time limits. But my fondest memory of Scotland is the Highlands. I booked two one day tours with Timberbush Tours. They can be easily found in the buiding of the Old Edinburgh Weaving Mill (another interesting place in Edinburgh, the tartan mill and shop, but be prepared to leave all you money there!), right at the entrance to the Castle. You can find more about their tours at www.timberbush-tours.co.uk

The driver-guides are very knowledgible and friendly. The bus is for 20 people. I went to Loch Ness tour (~12 hours) and Oban&Castles (~ 10 hours).

Weather

by keeweechic

Weather is described as being cold and clear in winter, warm and dry in summer although Robert Louis Stevenson described it as :
.
'The weather is raw and boisterous in winter, shifty and ungenial in summer and downright meteorological purgatory in spring.'

Forth Road Bridge

by zizkov

Much more recent than the rail bridge, the road bridge is a suspension bridge opened in 1964, another fine piece of engineering. Better views than the rail bridge whilst crossing it, and you can walk or cycle across (which I have never got round to doing yet). Tolls (currently 80p for cars, I think) only operate northbound.

CD Shopping on a Budget

by PA68 about Fopp

Quite simply the best CD shop in town. Fopps policy seems to be to stack 'em high and sell 'em cheap. You'll find all your new releases at maybe a pound or two cheaper than the big name stores but they also have stacks of older CDs starting at £5. It's a great place to plug all those gaps in your collection that you've been meaning to fill for years.

They also do books and DVDs.

As an added extra the new Rose Street shop also has a bar where you can get a beer to enjoy as you listen to potential purchases on the listening posts. Great eh? As much as you want or a little as a fiver.
