There are several options when it comes to travelling too and from the airport to the Knight Residence, our guests tend to use the variety of options to reach us to start their stay. You can get an airport taxi from the taxi rank at the airport which will bring you directly to our property, alternatively there is an Airlink 100 bus that takes you from the bus stops outside the arrivals terminal at the airport which will drop you on Princes Street or to St Andrews Square outside of TKMAXX, you can also get the Airlink back to the airport from the same stops. Another alternative is the tram which again can be caught from outside the arrivals terminal at the airport and this drops you off on Princes Street or St Andrews Square.
