    We were in town on Saturday with friends from the West! the place can only be described as magical during the festival , everyone is so cheerful and friendly, we had a great lunch in Cafe Andaluz, the place was heaving, we then went to Scotts in Rose street for a wee swally, a great time was had by all

    You could sail up and moor around Musselburgh , accommodation costs a fortune during the festival

    We are just in the middle of planning a long weekend to the Fringe biggest problem ( next to the prices of hotels   ) is what to go and see the amount of shows is bewildering so if anyone has any ideas for any comedy shows or theatre shows please post them, think we are going Friday the 5th or the 12th August

    We've used it for the airport and it was fine AJ. Never used it to go into Edinburgh city centre, but I expect it''l be OK.

    Nah, got to negotiate your way halfway around Edinburgh ring road to get there, drive to as near as you can get to Inverkething  railway station, there is free parking nearby, Google it, train takes you right in to city centre in about 25 minutes...
