We’ve prepared a welcome and information sheet which you can download below.


Using Google Maps is easiest – enter the postcode EH5 2AN and set travel mode to Public Transport then when you get here look out for house number 8 (Fraser Crescent). Note: bus fares are £1.70 flat rate per person per journey and you need exact change. If you are planning on more than 2 journeys in a day it’s best to ask the driver for a Day Saver ticket at £4.

Update August 2019: buses now accept contactless payments. You need to use a different card for each person, and you will be charged no more than £4 per day for unlimited travel – see https://www.lothianbuses.com/contactless/


Guests often ask us for recommendations for places to eat and things to do. Some also give us their own recommendations.

Getting to town by bus

Getting into town by bus is easy. Get on the number 8 bus from Granton Road (2 minutes walk from our house) and continue into town until you reach North Bridge. Get off opposite the Scotsman Hotel, walk up the hill for around 100m and you have arrived on The Royal Mile in the centre of the Old Town. Turn right to go up the Royal Mile to the Castle, or turn left to go down the Royal Mile to the Palace and Holyrood Park/Scottish Parliament.
