Bus Station


Edinburgh's Bus Station used to be an utter disgrace and a true embarrassment to the city. Thankfully it was renovated over the turn of the century into a modern, airy transport hub fit for the nations's capital with part of the site also being turned over for retail. Next to the bus station, we now have a Harvey Nichols department store as well as a number of designer label shops. The location is also very convenient, only 2 minutes slow walk from Princes Street and under 5 minutes walk from the railway station.

like a rundown old shed. you sometimes had to cross the road in front of the departing buses to get to your stance, which was outside. it was a mess.
