The Eric Liddell Centre
15 Morningside Road
If you are visiting us please sign in at reception and they’ll let us know you are here. There is a volunteer run cafe by reception and, unless you’d like to discuss something confidential, it’s often more pleasant to sit and chat there.
PLEASE NOTE: During the COVID-19 lockdown, we are also unable to routinely go into the office to collect and process any mail coming through by post. If you have sent something to us by post and it is urgent, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a digital copy of the mail you have sent or information about your query or concern.

The simplest route for those travelling from outside Edinburgh is to leave the City of Edinburgh Bypass (A720) at the Fairmilehead junction and take the A702 towards the city centre. This will take you directly to the office. Once you pass Waitrose you’ll know you are almost here.
If you are just popping in, there is a loading bay right outside the Eric Liddell Centre on the southbound side of Morningside Road. There also pay and display parking bays nearby on Morningside Road, Chamberlain Road, and Greenhill Park as well as some a little further away on Colinton Road outside the Merchiston Campus of Napier University. Chamberlain Road, and Greenhill Park also have some shared bays which can be used for pay and display or resident permit parking but be careful as some of the bays are also resident parking only. The pay and display bays are charges at £2.30/hr which can be paid in cash or through the RingGo website or app.
Please note that number 45 bus serves the office from the Hermiston Park & Ride.
A details parking map can be found on the Edinburgh City Council website.
Many of the Lothian Buses services run past the office (or in the case of the number 5, close to the office).

Haymarket Station is marginally our closest mainline station. It is 1.1 miles away but because it is mostly uphill it takes about 25 minutes to walk even without damaged joints. There is no direct bus service from Haymarket.
Waverley Station is a little further away at 1.8 miles and it’s uphill again so takes about 40 mins without damaged joints. However, there is a lot of choices of buses (see above).
If you have restricted mobility and would like us to pick you up from the station then please let us know in advance and we will do our best to arrange to meet you.
Those not wishing to take a taxi from Edinburgh Airport can take either the Edinburgh Tram or Airlink bus to Princes Street and pick up one of the buses services mentioned above.
