Bus from Melrose to Edinburgh

Jump to last reply

A friend and I are taking a public transit-only trip to England and Scotland. After spending a couple of days in the Scottish Borders based in Melrose, we are planning to head to Edinburgh. I see that there is National Express service between the two. However, the only bus of the day leaves at 3pm and we were hoping to get an earlier start. So we are thinking of taking a First Bus, either non-stop, or from Melrose to Galashiels and then on to Edinburgh. Changing at Galashiels would actually put us on a route that stops near our B&B in Edinburgh.

Does anyone know of any reason why this would be a bad plan? The First Bus website says that for single trips it's fine to buy your ticket on board. Would they have room for our luggage? We're not super-heavy packers, but will probably each have a larger than carry-on suitcase. I guess this is somewhat unpredictable in that if the bus is not full there will be more room for our luggage. But if anyone has first-hand knowledge of these buses that would be great.

Thanks for any words of advice!
