From the north/Forth Bridge/M90, follow the main road towards Edinburgh City Centre. There are 3 sets of lights after the Barnton Junction, and at all of them you go straight on heading for City Centre and Leith.
At the next lights, there is a Y junction at the “Farmer Autocare” garage, and you should take the left fork heading towards Leith.
This takes you along Telford Road and about 1 mile futher on you come to the Crew Toll roundabout.
Again, take the sign for Leith which is the 3rd exit, and this is Ferry Road which bears slightly to the right compared to Telford Road.
You should see the Selex factory on your left and, after it, a Morrisons store. Ferry Road is long and you still have nearly 2 miles to go!
Keep going straight on at every junction.
The last set of lights you go through before you reach Heriott Park is at Goldenacre, and you should see the curved shopfront of the Marie Curie Shop to your right.
Shortly after this junction there are rugby pitches to your right and a wide strip of ground between the pitches and the road, where cars are parked end on to the road.
Opposite these pitches, on your left, there is a row of large terraced houses, many of which are Guest Houses.
Heriott Park is number 254 Ferry Road. The car parking opposite the house is both plentiful and free.
From the Airport, follow the signs for Leith when you approach the Gogar roundabout and follow the directions above when you reach the Barnton Junction.
From Glasgow, exit the M8 for "Edinburgh City Bypass North" and from the Gogar roundabout follow the directions above when you reach the Banton Junction.

Public Transport Directions
The best bus to take is the 23 which leaves the City Centre from Hanover Street, which is off Princes Street opposite the Royal Academy Art Gallery. This is just 1 block away from Waverley Station.
During weekdays the 23 runs every 10 mins but at the weekend and evenings every 20 mins or 30 mins.
The bus stop in Hanover Street is outside The Pizza Hut restaurant and the bus fare is £1.50, but if you intend to use buses later the same day you should buy a bargain day ticket for £3.50 which allows unlimited travel on all Lothian Buses for the rest of the day. Beware - payment is by dropping money into a slot and no change is given.
If there is a group of you, then it will be easier to pay a total amount for the whole group to save you all looking for coins, e.g. £10.50 for 3 day tickets. The 23 route is Down Hanover Street, Dundas Street and Brandon Terrace. It then turns Left into Inverleith Row and heads to the T junction, when it turns right into Ferry Road. You should be starting to get ready to get off the bus after it turns into Ferry Road. There is 1 stop in Ferry Road just after the Royal Bank of Scotland and then you should get off the bus at the next stop which is immediately after the bus turns into Clark Road. Walk back onto Ferry Road and turn left. You will see the large houses on this side of Ferry Road, many of which are Guest Houses.
First there is Garfield, then Brig-o-doon, Ardleigh, then Heriott Park, 254 Ferry Road. This walk is only about 1 minute. If you have a lot of Luggage you should consider getting a taxi instead of the bus, and this will cost you about £8. Alternatively, you can walk the whole route in about 30 mins.
