Request for help to plan my Edinburgh trip

DublinerDubliner Member
I am from Dublin and would like to visit Edinburgh in July with wife and 2 kids. Please help me to plan my trip.

1. Is there any public transport available from the Edinburgh airport to Edinburgh city centre? 

2. What is the mode to pay for travel in Scotland (Edinburgh) via public transport - Coins & Notes (Sterling) / Credit or Debit cards / Travel Cards? Would I be able to buy tickets via Irish visa debit cards from the driver? 

2. Any theme parks accessible via public transport in Edinburgh?

3. How to reach M&D's - Scotlands theme park in Edinburgh from city centre? 

Appreciate your help...

    When you're travelling by bus and tram around Edinburgh there's also the option of using the smartphone app. The app allows you to buy tickets in advance with your card - you activate them just before you board and show your e-ticket to the driver (or conductor in the case of trams).

    The app also has lots of extra handy information such as route maps, live tracking of services showing you when the next one will arrive, and updates on any changes,  diversions, etc.
