How to get here

Foot

From Niddry Street: walk uphill to the High Street and turn left, turning on to the High Street. Walk up High Street until you reach St. Giles’ Cathedral (the large building with a crown-shaped roof, not a pointed spire!). We are situated in Warriston’s Close directly opposite.

From Castle Terrace: exit onto Castle Terrace, and walk uphill in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle, into Johnstone Terrace. At the top of the hill at the mini-roundabout, cross to the far side of the street (Lawnmarket) and walk down – passing Gladstone’s Land. At the junction with Bank Street / George IV Bridge, cross over onto High Street and walk down, passing the statue of David Hume. When you approach St. Giles’ Cathedral (the large building with the crown-shaped roof, not a pointed spire) look for Warriston’s Close opposite. We are situated within this close.
