Cockburn Street is an old town cobbled street which runs from the High Street downhill to Market Street. If you are walking downhill the hotel will be on your left around 100 meters from the top. Look out for Anchor Close and the words ‘The Scotsman’ on a gold sign at the front of our building.
Although Edinburgh is well sign posted and easy to access, parking in the city is both difficult and expensive. We recommend using public transport however, if you must bring your car please refer to the information on our car parking page.
The nearest main line railway station to the hotel is the famous Waverley Station, about a five minute walk away from the hotel. When you arrive at the station, exit into Market Street, turn right and Cockburn Street is the next left (an uphill cobbled street). You will find the hotel on the right hand side, half way up the hill.
Arriving at Edinburgh Airport there are three main options for reaching the hotel. Option 1 would be the service 100 airlink bus which leaves from the domestic departure area and terminates at Waverley Bridge, from there it is a five minute walk to the hotel. Option 2 would be to use Edinburgh’s new Tram service and alight at the east end of Princes Street near Waverley Station, again the walk from here is fairly short. The third option would be a black taxi or private hire cab direct from the airport, the journey time would be close to 25 minutes and cost around £25.
