Getting to Edinburgh Airport on Boxing Day

by OnAWave

Hi all,

I'm in Broughty Ferry, Dundee, and need to get to Edinburgh Airport for around 10:00 on the 26th December.

Previously, I've got a bus to Dundee Seagate and used the MegaBus service to get to the airport via the FerryToll park and ride, but this time they don't have a service which is early enough for me. I would be grateful for your pointers. Many thanks.

The Scottish CityLink website lists a bus that leaves Dundee Seagate at 08.00 and arrives in Edinburgh at 09.45. It is listed as a megabus. If this is the case, then you could hop off before the St Andrew's bus station - don't know where they stop but if all else fails, then you could get off at Haymarket and catch the airport bus from the other side of the road. As I assume that they must use the same stops at the CityLink buses, then you could get off at ...... darn it, I've forgotton the name..... the stop at the big roundabout with the hotel just as you enter Edinburgh. Sorry, but it's the first stop in Edinburgh. Then you could cross the road and get the airport bus. Or, if it is indeed a megabus such as you have caught before, then it is possible that you can do your FerryToll park and ride route.
The trains ervice appears to be onon-existent on the 26th.
The only other suggestions is taxi or car rental.

Many thanks for the advice. As it happens I'm now flying earlier, but your guidance may well be useful in future.

I found citylink (operator - Megabus) to have a bus leaving Dundee Seagate at 06:05 arriving at Edinburgh St. Andrew Sq at 08:05 ~ what time is your new flight time?

Travel Tips for Dundee

Great Castles & Heilan Coos!

by mizzzthanggg

Dundee is a nice small town where you'd go to find some peace and quiet, there's not much to do in the evenings by means of nightlife, and shops close very early (5.00 pm or something like that). As it was a business trip, I didn't have that much time to go round look at all the sights listed out in the Lonely Planet, but honestly none of them really sounded worth it to go see. However, the weather was fantastic and sightseeing trips in the surroundings and nearby Scottish towns was lovely!

In a nutshell, Edinburgh was beautiful, St Andrews very quaint (saw where Prince William studied and took a photo of the door to the Dept. of Art History where he must've walked through everyday.. sighh...), Glamis Castle was lovely with amazing gardens and filled with interesting stuff inside, e.g. the Queen Mother's doll house! The setting for one of the scenes from Shakespeare's Macbeth was situated here. There were also the best looking highland cows lounging in the meadows and by the streams in the castle!! Great looking creatures, with hair so thick and floppy falling over their eyes I just wanted to pick one up and take him home!!

We also visited the site of that Mel Gibson character in the movie... err.. what's it again... William Wallace! Will have to find the rest of my photos and post em up. More details of each of these places in follow-up tips soon.

Attending a HIGHLAND GAME...

by globetrott

Attending a HIGHLAND GAME might be one of the highlights of any vacation in Scotland.

Simply make sure, you go to one of the traditional Highland games, such as Blair Atholl or Balmoral ( where even the Queen will watch the competitions )

The Abbot's House Dunfermline,...

by margaretvn

The Abbot's House Dunfermline, it was the administrative headquarters of the first and richest Benedictine Abbey in Scotland.
In its time the house has been an Abbots house, a Laird's mansion, an iron foundry and an art school. it survuved a great fire in 1624, it forged armour for the fighters in the army of Robert the Bruce. The house has a long and wonderful history and that is shown in exhibitions.
open 262 days of the year.
Dunfermline is easily reached via the M90 and within an hours travel from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, St. Andrews, and Dundee.

Glamis Castle

by stevezero

Glamis Castle is the home of the Earl and Countess of Strathmore, who open it to the public. It was the childhood home of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, best known as the Queen Mother, and her daughter, Princess Margaret, was born there. A picture of the castle is featured on the Royal Bank of Scotland ten pound note.
The castle is one of the most legended castles in the world, it is “ a soaring pile of keep and towers, turrets and battlements.” It is said to have more dark secrets than any castle in Britain.

Few families are older than the Bowes-Lyons, The Lady and Earl of Strathmore. They had their own army 600 years ago and their own private hangman. King Malcolm II of Scotland was murdered here. Shakespeare placed the murder of Duncan by Macbeth in the stone floored vaulted Duncan’s hall of the castle. And when the Queen mother was a child, she and her sisters always scuttled at top speed through this room.
No family has had a more intriguing past. A Lady Glamis was burnt by James V as a witch, yet a few years later, Mary, Queen of Scots dined with the family and stayed the night. A monster is said to have dwelt in Loch Calder near the castle. There are many bricked up rooms in the castle. Somewhere in the sixteen-foot thick walls is the famous room of skulls, where the Ogilvies family, who sought protection from their enemies the Lindsay’s, were walled up to die of starvation, being no friends of the Strathmores. The tradition of the heavy pile contain much by its appearance and is impressive to the imagination.
There is a tea room in the castle, and the gardens and grounds are also open to the public. They are also open to functions like dinners and weddings.

Admission Rates:
Castle & Grounds Adult £7.30
Grounds Only Adult £3.70

Anything that goes into here will probably be reviews of my favourite locals, my favourite cinema and places I hang out. Not exactly touristy, but, if you're heading off in this direction and you want some local knowledge, I'll type up some essentials.
