How to find us


We are located very near to the centre of Edinburgh. Forres Street is in the Georgian New Town area, 250 yards due north of Princes Street (West End), the cultural, architectural and shopping hub of Edinburgh. A free map is available from multimap.com. Scheduled bus services from Edinburgh Airport (6 miles) will stop on request in Shandwick Place and Princes Street , leaving a short walk to Forres Street via Charlotte Square. The airport bus service offers good value at �3 single or �5 return. Taxis usually cost around �15-18 one way (maximum 5 persons � restricted luggage space). We can arrange pick-ups for larger parties from �25. Inchgrove House is 15-20 minutes on foot from Waverley railway station (East End of Princes Street), but taxis are readily available inside the station concourse, or at on-street ranks in South St David Street and Hanover Street, which are 2 minutes� walk from the station. Waverley Bridge is also the city centre terminus for Airport buses, and for most City Tour buses. It is also possible to alight at Haymarket railway station, which is equidistant from Forres Street, but the platforms there can only be reached via steps.

How to find us

(By Car):

Drivers should be aware that Forres Street is closed to vehicles at St Colme Street/Queen Street. Access is via Heriot Row, Darnaway Street and Moray Place (1st left). Visitors arriving by car from the south or west [M74/A702, A68, A1 & M8] should follow signs to the city centre (Princes Street), and from there to Queen Street, Queen Street Gardens, and Heriot Row. Visitors coming from Stirling [M9, then A8 to Gogar roundabout and Barnton roundabout], and the Forth Road Bridge [M90/A9], should follow signs for Edinburgh city centre, and join the Queensferry Road at the Barnton roundabout. Follow this road straight into the city centre, cross the Dean Bridge (note large church on right at bridge), then turn 1st left into Randolph Crescent, left again, then 1st right in Ainslie Place into St Colme Street/Queen Street. Forres Street is 1st on your left, but is closed at this end; take 3rd left for Heriot Row, then as above.
