Getting Here

The Edinburgh Campus is easy to access by car from the centre of Edinburgh and from all major routes leading to the city. The University is half a mile from the Calder Junction of the A720 City of Edinburgh by-pass and the A71, and you'll see signs for Heriot-Watt University on your approach.

Visitors to the RALT may wish to make use of visitor car parks A and B, which can be seen on the Heriot-Watt University Car Parking Map.

Lothian Buses offers local bus services 25, X25, 34, 35, 45, 63 and N25/N34 (night bus) to the Edinburgh Campus. Service 25 is the most frequent, leaving the city centre every 10 minutes during the day, and every 15 minutes after 8.00pm. The journey takes about 30–40 minutes from the city centre, depending on what time of day you’re travelling.

Long distance coach services to Edinburgh arrive at St Andrew Square bus station, at the east end of Princes Street. Connect via one of the Lothian bus services mentioned above.

If you wish to travel by rail, we recommend you arrive at one of the central Edinburgh railway stations, Waverley or Haymarket, and connect to the campus by bus.

There are stations more local to the university, including Edinburgh Park, Edinburgh Gateway, and Curriehill, but these stations have no direct transport links to the campus.

For full travel information, please see maps and directions on the Heriot-Watt University website.
