I’m just fed up with the Perth-Edinburgh train service – slow trains, hopeless times [particularly in the early morning], lack of parking at Perth Station and so on … So I’m going through one of my phases of trying alternatives – before I go back to the train. Today’s was to drive to the new Park and Ride at Ingliston just by Edinburgh Airport and take the £1.20 bus in from there. It proved to be not a great idea. I waited almost 15 minutes for the bus at each end and it was a painfully slow journey to the City Centre. I would have been faster on the Brompton but the A8 is not appetising for cyclists.
Next attempt is the Megabus – maybe from the Park and Ride at Kinross rather than the Broxden Roundabout. I’ll let you know how it goes.
A flurry of phone calls from Belfast this morning reminded me that the BBC in Belfast has been putting out some of my pre-recorded Thought for the Day – if you’re interested it’s here and here and here and here
