Getting here

From the Airport

The Airlink bus runs regularly from the airport to St Andrews Square. Full details of this service can be found at Lothian Bus's Airport services . From there we are an easy 20 minute walk via Dublin St, East London St, Bellevue (all mostly downhill). Unfortunately, there is no useful bus service to us from St Andrews Square and walking is your easiest option.

Alternatively you can take the tram from the airport to Picardy Place, and then it's only a 10 minute walk to us down Broughton Street and Bellevue.

A direct taxi from the airport should cost about £25 (normal traffic conditions).

From Waverley Rail Station

The B&B is an approximate 25 minute walk from Waverley Station, via Leith Street and Broughton Street. The number 8 bus services this route, stopping on Bellevue just opposite East Claremont Street, 2 minutes from us. Alternatively, take a taxi from one of the ranks just outside the station.

From Edinburgh Bus Station

The B&B is an approximate 15 minute walk from the Bus Station, which is located between St Andrews Square and York Place. See the 'From Airport' section regarding bus and tram options for appropriate directions.


All parking is on-street and ticketed by machine (or by RingGo App) from 08:30 to 17:30, Monday to Friday only, at £2.60 per hour, with a limit of 4 hours. Parking is therefore free at the weekend, from Fri 17:30 to Mon 08:30. The nearest ticket machine is found alongside the hedge at the end of our block of buildings (about 100m to the right when exiting the b&B).

Free parking is available about a 10-15 minute walk from the B&B, just outside the city central parking zone. You go to Broughton Road (at the north end of our street), turn right, go past the McDonald Road junction to where the road widens and all parking is free from that point on.

It is not advisable to have a rental car while in the city. It would be much better to rent only when leaving the city to travel on through the rest of Scotland, and best to pick up from the airport if you're going west or north.

Please Note: We are family-run with no staff so arrivals expected after 10pm should be arranged in advance. Flight delays, etc on the day can be accommodated.
