Craigwell Cottage is within walking distance of Waverley Station. If you are travelling by train for your weekend break take the Calton Road exit. If you are flying to Edinburgh Airport for your weekend break take the Airport Bus Number 100 to Waverley Bridge and walk through the station to the Calton Road exit. Alternatively you can take the Airport Bus 300 which is a slower service  (taking approximately one hour) stopping at Queen Mary’s Bath House (stop next to Holyrood Palace) which is only a short walk up Calton Road to Craigwell Cottage.

If you are driving for your weekend break the good news is you can park for free during your stay!
