Up at 4.00am to ferry Russell to the airport. The unfortunate consequences of cheap flights is that it requires getting up in the ungodly hours of the morning. It's even worse when you aren't actually going on the flight. The upside, if there is such a thing, is that I get to see a sunrise.
I can recommend South Queensferry at 5.30am. Not a soul to be seen at that time. Not even a train.
