    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but
    its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep
    streets suggests this was not always the
    case. Today, it’s mostly visitors,
    tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and
    pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled
    streets. This is the place to get a feel

    Upon departing the hotel, I'll be taking a train from Edinburgh to Inverness. I'm looking to advance book this now. for a departure, is Haymarket or Waverly the better choice? Assuming a taxi is used, what is an estimated amount of time a trip from hotel to train would take? (I'm trying to decide which train departure time is best.)
