From the Coach 17 October 2009
Oct 17, 2009

Rather than climb up to Dalmeny Railway Station we took advantage of a local coach operator who was offering the return trip into Edinburgh at a fraction of the price Cunard were charging & he was running every half an hour so one didn't have to spend 5 hours there.
