The Royal Mile is the most famous street in Scotland. You can ask anyone how to get there.

By train: Arrive at Waverley Station and take the pedestrian exit to Market Street. From there, turn right and walk up Cockburn Street to the High Street and turn right.

By plane: Either take a taxi (£15-£25) or Airlink bus (£6 return). The Airlink will drop you off at Waverley Station (last stop).

By car: Head for the city centre or Old Town. The pedestrian zone is closed to traffic by rising bollards that lower between 0630 and 1030 every day.

Please note: Edinburgh is notorious for its parking wardens. There are no parking places for this apartment as the street is a pedestrian zone. The nearest parking is in Cockburn Street and costs £2/hour. Other parking options listed here. The nearest free parking is by Duddingston Loch. Edinburgh is very compact and walkable, with a good public transport system. We recommend leaving your car outside. There are several park and ride parks at Edinburgh’s periphery.

By boat: The Union Canal comes right into Edinburgh’s Fountainbridge, where there are moorings. If you’re coming in from the sea there are moorings at Newhaven.

By bicycle: The National Cycle Network route 1 runs through Holyrood Park. From the Palace of Holyrood, head straight up the Royal Mile until you reach the pedestrian zone. The local cycle network is called Spokes and they sell maps with cycle trails around edinburgh.
