How to get there
The Yair is located 35 miles south of Edinburgh and we are approximately 1 hour by car from both the City centre and from Edinburgh International airport. There is a train from Edinburgh Waverly to The Scottish Borders and the best stops for Yair are Stow or Galashiels. We would recommend bringing a car to maximise your enjoyment of the local area but if this is not possible we can provide the number for a local taxi firm who will be more than happy assist.
