From Edinburgh Airport (car). Upon leaving the airport follow signs to Edinburgh City Centre, turn left onto the A8 (Glasgow Road). Follow this road (right hand lane recommended) until a large roundabout is reached. Turn right following signs to City Bypass south and east (A720). Get on the bypass and follow it for several junctions, eventually turning off left along the A701 Straiton Road. Follow this road until a large junction is reached (Nether Liberton). Take the Craigmillar Park (continuation of the A701) exit and take the second left which is Wilton Road. Take the second right off Wilton Road and you are now at Granby Road.

From Edinburgh Airport (airport bus). The Airport bus goes to Waverley Train Station (single 4.00, open return 7.00)

From Edinburgh Waverley Train Station (Car/Bus route). Come out of Waverley station onto Waverley Bridge. Turn right onto Princes Street (Bus stop across the road — in front of Marks & Spencers Department Store, take No. 3, 3A, 29, 31, 37, 47). The buses will turn right onto North Bridge. Then continue along South Bridge, Nicholson Street, South Clerk Street, Minto Street, Mayfield Gardens, and Craigmillar Park.

If by bus (from Princes Street) - ask the driver to let you off at Craigmillar Park. After Mayfield Gardens (do not get off the bus here) look out to your right for a Nursery school (Suffolk House Nursery). Get ready to alight. At the bus stop, go across the road at the traffic lights, turn into Suffolk Road (next to the Nursery school building), then second left into Granby Road.

Don't worry if you miss the bus stop, the next one is about 100 metres away in front of Travelodge Inn (the distance from this stop to our house is the same as the previous stop, we are in between the 2 bus stops). After you have alighted, go across the road at the traffic lights (before Travel Lodge), turn right, walk pass a bus stop, then left into Wilton Road (there is a red post box at the entrance) and then the second right into Granby Road.

By car (from Princes Street) follow the bus route, after Mayfield Gardens, keep right, about 200 metres further on, after a set of overhead traffic lights, be ready to turn into Suffolk Road (next to Suffolk House Nursery). Once you are on Suffolk Road, take the second left into Granby Road.
