Be sure to explore the winding hilly streets of Edinburgh and soak up all the amazing history and Scottish culture there.
When it comes to travelling from Glasgow Airport to Edinburgh city centre, you have three options; taxi, bus or train. Taking a Glasgow airport taxi is the only direct transfer option, it takes just 1 hour and 10 minutes to reach Edinburgh and costs around €110 (£90 GBP). The cheapest option is to take the Airport Express service 500 and Citylink 900 buses, which costs just £17.50 (€20.50), but you have to make a change in Glasgow, so it does take approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes. Another public transfer option is to take the train. However, there are no trains from Glasgow Airport, so you will need to take the Airport Express service 500 into Glasgow city centre first. The cost for this journey is around €30 (£25.40 GBP) and it takes approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Glasgow at the same price as a regular taxi.
