Pilrig House’s location really is hard to beat: just over a mile from the centre of Edinburgh (with an easy bus link), and only a short stroll to the Shore area of Leith, which has become the top foodie destination in Edinburgh and among the best in the UK. You may choose to walk there via the beautiful Water of Leith Walkway, which can be reached within minutes of Pilrig House. Also close by are: The Playhouse Theatre, a swim and leisure centre, Martin Wishart’s Cook School, Edinburgh’s Botanical Gardens, the Royal Yacht Britannia, and additional award-winning eateries.

On arrival at Edinburgh International Airport, a taxi rank is directly outside the main entrance. An airport cab here will cost in the region of £25 (12 miles) and take around 25 minutes to arrive here. Please give the address 30 Pilrig House Close (off Bonnington Rd) to the driver.
Or, reserve an airport 'Meet & Greet' (£40) with the car driver/tour guide we recommend to all guests on booking with us - Mike will greet you at the arrivals area, holding up a board with your name on it, and bring you directly here in an air-conditioned people-carrier.
(A CitiLink Airport bus can take you directly into the city centre from Edinburgh Airport for around half the price of a cab for 2 people; however, they take twice as long and, by the time you pay for a cab here from the terminus stop at Waverley Bridge, the cost is almost the same as that of an airport cab directly here!) Also, for 3 or 4 people, the airport cab is definitely cheaper!)
Edinburgh Waverley Station – just off Princes St – is around 1.5 miles from the apartments. A station cab directly here will cost around £8-£10. Please give the address 30 Pilrig House Close (off Bonnington Rd) to the driver.
A taxi from the bus drop-off point will cost around £6. Please give the address 30 Pilrig House Close (off Bonnington Rd) to the driver.
