I am reposting this topic, as my question is now slightly different.
We are staying in St. Andrews during the Tattoo in Edinburgh. We decided to get tickets and attend on a Thursday night.
We looked into train service to get us back and forth, but the last train from Edinburgh to Leuchars is at just past 11pm and with the show likley to end at 10:30pm, the advice from people seemed to be it would be too tight to catch the train.
We will have a car in St. Andrews, so my question is this: Is there a city or location on the outskirts of Edinburgh where we can drive and park, then catch a taxi into the city?
It seems like this would be much cheaper than hiring a taxi to drive us the whole way from St. Andrews to Edinburgh and then back after the show.
For example, can we drive to EDI and park at the airport in long term parking, and then take a taxi into town? Or looking at a map, could we find someplace to park in a town like Queensferry/Dalmeny/Craigiehall and take a taxi from there?
Thanks so much for any help you can provide!
