    Road Directions

    Driving notes

    If you are driving to the apartment, we recommend you approach Old Tolbooth Wynd from Calton Road; the Canongate end comes through a tight tunnel under a tenement.

    Even if you have a sat-nav in your vehicle, we still recommend a map to accompany you. (These are quite new apartments and don’t always show up on older sat-navs for some reason) You can find a Google map on our web-site, which is

    Your booking includes parking for one car in the garage, if you wish to use it.

    Public Transport Directions

    Train arrivals

    It’s an easy walk (5 – 10 minutes) from the back of Waverley station – provided you use the exit 4 to Calton Road.  The exit goes up and down two short, wide flights of stairs. Turn right and it’s the second opening on the right, then the second door up the street (keep out of the courtyards, wait for the street).  If you’re laden or tired, there is a taxi rank in the station.


    Airport arrivals

    There is a taxi rank at the airport, and a taxi will cost around £25 to the door.  There is also an airport bus, but it doesn’t come very close to the apartment and the walk will talk 10 – 15 minutes, up and down hills. We recommend a taxi myself.
