Transport from San Sebastian to Edinburgh, UK

Hi, I am planning a 9 week long, Europe and UK trip. Most of it is in place, however after being advised that i could fly out from San Sebastian to Edinburgh, I cannot seem to find any airlines that do this. Currently I am looking to be in San Sebastian from 6th Aug 2013 and was planning to fly to Edinburgh on 9th Aug 2013, to start a tour on 10th Aug 2013.

Can anyone please provide advice on how I can do this, or if i need to fly out from another area? Or even change this part of my itinerary around.

Thank you.

Easyjet also fly to Manchester from Biarritz airport. You could then get a train from there to Edinburgh (or even fly).

Ryanair fly Bordeaux - Edinburgh, Bordeaux isn't difficult by train from San Sebastian. Only €45 too on 6th August dep 15:00 (plus bags) if you book now - not bad at all!

Or Spain to any of the UK cities. Then get to Scotland.

Hi, I just wanted to post on here, what solution I found to my problem, in case anyone else comes accross this post later down the track.

Travel from San Sebastian, Spain to Edinburgh, Scotland.

1. Catch a bus with either PESA or ALSA from San Sebastian to Bilbao (depart & arrival bus stations depend on company used, so some local transport may be required from accomodation)

2. Fly from Bilbao Airport using Vueling Airlines to London (Heathrow)

3. Fly British Airways from London (Heathrow) to Edingburgh.

This will take approx 7hrs, to include check in times etc. I hope it all goes to plan :)

Thanks for everyone's help.
