Edinburgh airport Q&A
Where are the car hire desks?
All Edinburgh Airport car rental desks are located outside the main terminal; just follow the signs from the arrivals hall.
What should I buy at duty free?
It’s practically law that all visitors must leave with a large stash of shortbread. Whether you decide to share it when you get home is up to you but if you know you won’t be able to give it away, pick up a bagpipe-playing, kilt-wearing teddy, for your nearest and dearest instead.
Are there any cashpoints?
There’s an ATM and a bureau de change next to the baggage enquiries desk.
Where's the best place to eat?
The Fringe Bar & Eating Place serves up great snacks and meals.
The secret tip
For a cosy, traditional meal of Haggis, head to Dirty Dicks bar on Rose Street but do it before you’ve been shopping - this place is crammed with trinkets and collectibles of all kinds and there isn’t a lot of space.
Edinburgh airport the gateway to...
Distance: 10 miles
Edinburgh is best known for its castle and its annual events; the Fringe, a month long comedy, music and arts festival and the military tattoo, both of which run during August. Beyond that, the city is a magical place to while away the days strolling along cobbled streets, being entertained by tour guides at haunted sites and eating your fill of excellent food.
Distance: 46 miles
Although Edinburgh is the capital city, Glasgow is the larger of the two. The difference between them used to be considered one of class, with Glasgow being more industrial and blue collar, but now, both cities have much to celebrate in terms of their arts, sports, education and cultural institutions and tourists flock with good reason to both. Take the hire car for a drive straight along the M8 motorway and see for yourself.

This harbour town just outside Edinburgh boasts great shops, dining and a chance to act like Kings and Queens on a visit to the Royal Yacht Britannia. Take a walk along all five decks, sip tea in the Royal Tea Room and browse some of the shops in the Ocean Terminal.
