These practical tips and hints about airport security will save you lots of time and energy on your journey to Edinburgh:
One walk through the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland, and you’ll think you’ve been sent back to the days of William Wallace. A medieval castles dwarfs the city. Cobblestones line many of the streets. The sound of bagpipes drift out of building windows down the alleyways. If you prefer kilts and tam o’shanters to jeans and a baseball cap, Edinburgh Airport (EDI) is your jumping-off point for an unforgettable adventure in the Scottish Highlands.
After your Edinburgh flight lands and you’re taxiing to the gate, it will be tough not to imagine being at the top of Edinburgh Castle during one of its many sieges. Can the plane just fly you to the tallest turret? Probably not, so make sure to check out the bus lines located next to the car rental center on the ground level of Terminal 1. The buses have service to different parts of the city: Grassmarket, Dean Village, and the Financial District, as well as to the hotels close to EDI. There’s also an efficient tram service leaving every 10 minutes from the Edinburgh Airport tram stop into the downtown area, putting you in close proximity to major attractions. If you’re looking for some local knowledge, catch a taxi cab outside of baggage claim and pick your driver’s brain about Old and New Town, Arthur’s Seat, and where the best Scotch whiskey can be found.
