Although a large city, Edinburgh’s major sights and hotels tend to be within walking distance of the two main train stations Waverly and Haymarket. However, if you don’t fancy a trek up the Royal Mile to the famous Edinburgh Castle or along Princess Street for some retail therapy then as you would expect there are plenty of black cabs to hail along the way or for some real fun, why not try a Rickshaw.
