Fraoch house 66 Pilrig Street how to get it

Hi everybody,

next month ma and my gf we will visit Edinburgh.

We gonna stay in Fraoch House, 66 Pilrig Street

do u have any idea how to get it from Waverly Rail Station? I think bus number 11 isn't ? Where is it possible to purchase the tickets for buses?

Or ... it is within walking distance?

Thank you for advise.

Giorgio

just get the no 22 bus from Princes Street to Pilrig street and a short walk from there, you can pay on the bus £1.50 per person but you need the exact change

sorry I should say the 22 bus goes down Leith walk and get off at the stop nearest to Pilrig street and I think you may have to walk 2-300 yards

The #22 is very frequent, bus stop just outside the station on Princes Street, and the #25 will also do.

The #11 bus runs down Pilrig Street. There's a bus stop almost at your destination. Accessible from St Andrews Square, therefore won't save much distance on arrival, but might be useful during your stay.

£3.50 for a day ticket on Lothian Buses. Again, exact change.

There are half a dozen other buses pass the junction at Pilrig; you won't be short of transport.

It is the Good Soldier Svejk, from the book written by Jaroslav Hasek,the painting is by Josef Lada a well lnown illustrator who did the Illustration for the book in the 1920's.

I am a regular traveller to the Czech Republic (will be back there late October) and Svejk is a favourite character of mine and have used his picture as my avatar for several years, earlier this year I had a tattoo done and that is what you seee as my avatar.

You should read the book it is very good.
