Buses to Royal Yacht Britannia from Princess st or George St

We are visiting Edinburgh soon for the day and plan to visit Royal Yacht found out that there are 3 buses from the centre of Edinburgh no. 11, 22 or 35, but some say from Princess street and others say from George Street, we will arrive by train into Waverly station, from there where will be the best place to get the bus and do they run often

Except in the evening (due to tram works) the 11 & 22 leave from Princes (not Princess) Street. The 35 doesn't go anywhere near either Princes or George Street but goes down the bottom half of the Royal Mile

You should be able to come out of Waverley Station by the Waverley Steps, cross to the other side of the road and get a bus from one of the bus stops there (tram works permitting)

There's another choice: the 36 stops on Waverley Bridge, and takes a route through George Street before heading to Ocean Terminal. But the 22 is the most frequent. Journey time about 15 minutes.

I agree with the previous comments. Take any bus going to "Ocean Terminal" such as the 11, 22, 35 or 36. The fare is £1.50 - have coins ready, no change is given.
