City/town information

It is possible to spend days wandering around Edinburgh, and there is far too much info to include in this booklet. Let us know what interests you and we can give you some ideas of where to go and what to see. There is a regular bus from Pathhead, there is an hourly train from Gorebridge (10 minute drive). We would suggest that you do not drive as parking is often difficult and very expensive!
