Location in Marchmont, south Edinburgh


To reach Marchmont from the airport

Airlink Buses run frequently between the airport and the city centre, cost about £4.50 1 way, £6 or £7 return. You can get bus 41 (£1.50 single) to Marchmont (walk up the hill along Market Street to the Mound after getting off the airport bus at the terminal at Waverley Station) or a taxi (costs between £5 and £10 depending on time of day). The tram also travels to Princes Street where you can get a taxi or the no 41 bus to Marchmont.


We can recommend pre-booking a taxi with Midlothian Taxi Hire, which a cost effective option (as well as time effective!) for groups of four or more. The "airport greet" service includes waiting with a name board at the arrivals area, and transfer to the flat. For the "airport pick-up" service, the taxi waits just outside the airport perimeter until you call to let them know you have picked up your bags and they come to the pre-booked taxi rank just outside the terminal a couple of minutes later, and transfer to the flat. Please contact Midlothian Taxi Hire directly regarding availability and booking: +44 (0)131 440 2985, email:


An airport taxi from the rank can also be a cost-effective option for a group to travel between the airport and city, and is also quicker to get to the flat than by tram or bus. It has the advantage that it does not need to be pre-booked, though you will queue with others at the airport and can take a little while at busy times.


To reach Marchmont by bus or train

Buses serve Marchmont frequently from the city centre. Bus no 41 stops on Warrender Park Road going to Princes Street via the Mound, or south to the university (Kings Buildings). Bus no. 24 stops on Marchmont Road, heading towards the West End via Lothian Road or to the New Royal Infirmary on the A7. Bus no 5 stops on Grange Road, heading towards London Road and the top of Leith Walk, or to Morningside. Many other buses stop nearby on Nicholson Street/Clerk Street and Lothian Road/Bruntsfield Place. See Lothian Buses Route Map here (we are close to the Royal Hospital for Sick Children marked on the bus map, zoom in by moving the zoom level red marker on the left side). Adult Bus tickets cost £1.20 for a single or £3 for a day ticket valid on all lothian buses.

From Waverley Train Station, bus no 41 heading to Marchmont stops on Waverley Bridge, just outside the road entrance into the station, opposite the airport bus terminal. Alternatively, a taxi can be found at the rank inside the station or walking takes about half an hour.

From Haymarket Train Station, there are no direct buses, so a taxi from the rank outside the station is the best option. Or walking takes about half an hour.
