Like Aaron said, 15 is your best bet, but not 15A.
If you don't mind a short walk (~1mile), there is also the 37/47 routes
The day ticket (£3.20) is worth it if you're taking 3+ buses. You don't get
free transfers on Lothian buses.
Based on my rough calculations, assuming Tariff 2, a taxi from the Cumberland
bar to Roslin would cost ~£15-20. Afaik, marketing aside, the black cabs are
no more expensive than the private hire ones.
