Hi everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone is driving to Bonaly and could pick me up on the way? I'll be visiting a friend at Herriot Watt University, which according to Google Maps is only a couple of miles away from the scout centre. If not I'm sure there'll be a bus going that way. Thanks.

Gemma :)

There isn't a very direct bus you could get - it'd mean getting a 34 part-way into Edinburgh and then a 10 back out - but if there wasn't anyone passing I could probably arrange a lift.

Depending on what sort of time, I could arrange to pick you up. I will be in Edinburgh for most of the day (food shopping and general organising but could arrAnge something for you.

I'm planning on setting off earlyish on Friday so I can have a few hours in Edinburgh, so I'd be happy to meet up! I'm driving up, so I can take up to four people from the centre of Edinburgh

Myself, mazi and miserybabe will be arriving in Edinburgh by train at 3.30 ish - if we could meet up with sparkly and jenn and then get a lift that would be brilliant! Maybe best if you ask Fenris about driving in Edinburgh city centre as I think there's havoc with the trams and roadworks?

I'll let people know about directions for cars nearer the time, we tend to only get a week's notice of road closures and tramworks due to diversions, so I'd rather wait and give you accurate directions at the time, rather than say something now and have to alter it later!

The same applies to bus stops in town!

As of next week Shandwick place is shut all buses westbound are being directed along the western approach the come off at the premier in and into haymarket so traffic that way will be a nightmare! Im just off shandwick place at work so get regular updates at work :D

Hey all,

Thanks for all the replies; sorry I haven't got back to anyone yet. I kinda thought that the replies would come to my email inbox as well, so I only realised that people had replied the other day when I checked here again! I think I'll get the bus from town with madmonkey, if that's what you're still doing? Sparklyguider and Scotchmi5t, are you getting a lift with jenthefunkyranger or going by bus?

I can collect you from HeriotWatt and take you in the car, easy enough for me to do as just off the bypass
PM me if you want me to get you
