We will be staying about a 15 walk from Waverly near Grassmarket and catching an international flight out of EDI at 8:20AM on a Friday morning. EDI website says to arrive 3hrs early - How strict is that? (For example Toronto Pearson offers the same guidelines but the actual need varies by time of day.) Normally I'd take the bus I'm sort of leaning towards a taxi despite the added expense based on the early departure time and having luggage with us. Thoughts? Is the bus worth the savings do you think?
Where do you actually catch the bus at Waverly? Google maps is telling me to enter the station from N Bridge but I thought it was more towards Cockburn?
