Transporting bike from Edinburgh airport to Glentress/Innerleithen

I’m lucky enough to have family that bought a house just 10 mins driving from Glentress in Scotland.
Living in Holland the cheapest way to get to Scotland is by plane. I recently took the overnight ferry with my own car and bike on the roof and it was 1000+ euros for a 4 day trip (family of 4). A bit silly.

Anyway flying would be great but I need to transport from edinburgh to the house and for the weekend. Any suggestions? Ideally i’d Rent a car with a bike rack fitted or an affordable van. Struggling to find a suitable solution though...

    jut rent a small hatchback, fold the back seats down and put the bike in the boot ;)

    There used to be a bike bus from Edinburgh to Glentress but it sounds like it stopped running a few years ago.
    Not sure if these guys are still running:
