Sweetsleep,

Firstly, none of us have any idea about whether or not there will be a strike. All a ballot does is test the water...........do the employees really want a strike? A lot of them are positive, as voting yes costs nothing, and gives the negotiators a bit of confidence.
So even if the ballot is strongly in favour of a strike, it just leads on to more negotiations. From day to day, no-one knows where these will lead!
The probability of your flight being impacted is pretty low. Personally, I would not worry.

If you want to do some pre-planning on a just in case basis - the London Tube, Piccadilly Line - at LHR takes you direct to Kings Cross, the station you will want to use to get to Edinburgh. Large suitcases can be taken on to both the London Tube and the train lines to Scotland. The trains from Kings Cross to Edinburgh are fine, but late bookings are expensive. The Edinburgh station is reasonably central.
