How do I reach the apartment from Edinburgh Airport?

Take the tram (a single is £5 and a return £8) to the last stop on York Place/St Andrew’s Square.  The journey time is 35 minutes and 1 Bellevue Terrace is less than 10 minutes walk down Broughton Street.  You could take the bus – Airlink 100 ( a single is £4 and a return £7) – they run every 10 minutes to Waverley Bridge, which is close to the station and Princes Street.  If you are arriving by train to Waverley you can take a taxi – it’s a short ride and shouldn’t cost you more than £7.
