There is a park and ride around a 15 minute drive from us. It is on the edge of the city, where you can park your car all day for free (max stay 18 hrs)then jump on the frequent buses into the city. This service operated frequently throughout the day and evening. Check at terminal or with the bus driver what time the last bus is…

With an All Day ticket you can hop on and off as many of the Lothian buses as you want in Edinburgh. A very cost effective way of seeing the city!
