Travelling by Car

From outside Edinburgh, the easiest way to reach Alba Hills Guest House by car is via the "Straiton Junction" on the City Bypass. Leave the bypass at this point and turn first left at the roundabout towards the "City Centre" (A701). Continue until you reach a small roundabout at the end of Liberton Road.
Take the second turning on the left (effectively straight on) into Craigmillar Park Road, and continue up through 2 sets of traffic lights and the House is situated on the right hand side 100m past the traffic lights.

From the North

From the Forth Road Bridge, continue along the A90 towards "Edinburgh", joining onto Queensferry Road just before the Barnton junction. Turn right at this junction onto Maybury Road and continue until it reaches the Maybury junction. Turn right and follow the signs for the "City Bypass" (A720). Once on the bypass, continue round until you see the exit marked "Straiton Junction".

From the West

From the M8 motorway, continue to the end of the motorway to you come to a large roundabout (Hermiston Gait junction). At the roundabout, take the third exit signposted "City Bypass" (A720). Continue until you reach the exit signposted "Straiton Junction".

From the South/East

From the A1, before you reach Edinburgh you will see a junction signposted for "City Bypass" (A720). Take this exit (first left) and follow the A720 northbound. At the first roundabout (Sheriff hall Junction), take the third turning and continue on the A720 until you reach the exit signposted "Straiton Junction".

Travelling by Bus

The nearest bus stop to the Guesthouse is at Mayfield Gardens. These bus stops are served by Lothian Buses with services 3, 3A, 8, 29, 31, 37, 47 and 49 all running up/down South Bridge.

Travelling by Rail

Waverley Station is Edinburgh's major rail terminus, with services accessing Scotland (via Scotrail) and the rest of the UK (via GNER and Virgin Rail).
From Waverley Railway Station, the Guest House is a 15 minute drive (by taxi) or 20 minutes by bus

Travelling by Air

We would recommend a taxi to bring you directly to the guest house - there are a number of Airport Taxis available to hire from the terminal.

Alternatively, there is a regular Air link bus service which will bring you right into the city centre.
