Arrive at Edinburgh’s Waverley Station via Virgin Trains East Coast for a city break from Aberdeen, Inverness, London, York, Leeds, Newcastle or Durham (or more stations within easy reach of the Virgin Trains East Coast rail links).
At Craigwell Cottage, which is just a short walk from Waverley Station, we offer short breaks from 3 nights minimum (7 nights at peak times). We sleep up to 4 people in one double room, and one twin-bedded room. No sofa beds here, although we do offer the possibility of a travel cot in lieu of one of the twin beds for our younger visitors.
Virgin Trains have some great ideas of how to save on travel costs when visiting Edinburgh, and with Craigwell Cottage being only a short stroll from the station, it’s a great location from which you can wander to the city centre attractions, no matter what the weather.
