Taxi Costs please

Can anyone please tell me the approximate cost of a taxi from the airport to our B&B in Seton Place. It looks not far from Grange cemetery. After a very very long from Australia I think we don't want to get a shuttle into the city then a taxi from there.

Many thanks

About £20, including tip.

Just in case you wondered a "tip" is discretionary and not compulsory, so entirely up to yourself as to whether you feel inclined to part with some of your cash over and above the fare.

Yes you can pay in English pounds. They are acceptable in Scotland.

Some places in England don't like to take Scottish pounds but that's a different story.....

Or rounded up would be fine as well, if it is £18.80 then a £20 note would be fine, he won't be offended.
