takes about 10 minutes and costs around 12 pounds. An alternative
(but longer route) is to take the bus (which runs frequently) from the
airport to the city centre and then take a bus from the city centre to
Heriot-Watt University. This costs about 5 pounds but takes up to two
hours. A taxi from city center costs also around 12 pounds. You can
also get buses from Princess street in the city centre directly to
