Directions

2. Bus No. 100 (AIRLINK airport shuttle) + Bus No. 41 (or walk).

Take the bus Number 100 AIRLINK (£3.5 single ticket/ £6 return) and go out at the last stop (Waverley Station). Once you there, there are 2 options:

By Bus: To get to Argyle Backpackers from Waverley Station, catch a number 41 bus from the Mound (go up to Princess Street, it's the parallel street to Waverley Station) in the ‘Craighouse’ direction. Ask the bus driver to stop at Warrender Park Road, the name of the bus stop is ‘Roseneath Street’. The bus ticket costs £1.50 - you need exact change as none is given. The hostel is on Argyle Place which is just around the corner from Warrender Park Road, opposite the Argyle Pub, there is a white sign out the front.

On foot: You can walk up the Mound to the Royal Mile, keep heading straight over George IV Bridge and then go right at the ‘Y’ intersection, cross the road at the traffic lights and head straight down a walking only path. This will take you to the Meadows (the largest park in Edinburgh). Walk straight across the Meadows to the other side where the traffic lights are on Melville Drive. This is the bottom of Argyle Place so head straight up the street and the backpackers is on your left hand side with a white sign out the front.

3. TAXI. Taxi ride to the airport takes about 30min, costs around £18 - £20. Taxi ride to the train station (Waverley) costs around £6-£7.
