In Princes Street, look for the stops for Lothian Buses service 44. You'll find them on the shops side of the street at the junctions with Castle Street and Frederick Street, and opposite the Scott Monument. Buses run roughly every 15 minutes, and the journey takes about 20 minutes. Just ask the driver to let you know when to get off. Or you could take the First Bus Service numbers 44 or 124 from St Andrew's Square.
Caution: City-centre roadworks are currently disrupting bus services. The information above describes the normal situation. Check the Lothian Buses website for temporary bus-stop locations.

If you're approaching Edinburgh from the west, follow the A720 city bypass all the way to the A1. At that point, turn left to join visitors coming in from the east on the A1.
