My wife and I found Falcon Crest to be an easy drive from Waverly train station and an easy departure point for travel to the North and West of Edinburgh. I had not thought to ask for early arrival and found that to have been a mistake. Parking at Falcon Crest is limited, but on-street, neighborhood parking proved to be relatively easy. The room was clean and adequate in size with a big window overlooking numerous neighbor's backyards with several lovely flowerbeds! Access to public transportation is excellent with bus stops a short walk. We spent some time talking to the host and hostess about the area, downtown Edinburgh, bus transportation and things to do and see. Interaction with the hosts and hostesses is a major part of our travel experience. We like to know about them, their city and country.
