The workshop is located at:
20 Lochrin Buildings
Getting to the workshop:
Take the train to Waverley Station, come out of the station and walk west along Princess Street to locate a bus stop served by one of the above buses. Or if you prefer a short, largely traffic free walk follow this route from Haymarket Station
Gilmore Place is in the middle of the Peripheral Controlled Zone. There is a single yellow line immediately outside the shop, where you can park for 5 minutes to load/unload. There are ticket spaces opposite the shop and slightly further up Gilmore Place on the same side. These operate between 9.15 am and 4.30 pm. There are further ticket spaces on Hailes Street, slightly further up Gilmore Place on the opposite side of the road from the shop. These operate between 8.30am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday.
A Google map showing parking spaces is available courtesy of Tollcross Traders Association, or you can download a leaflet from Edinburgh Council as a pdf. Please park legally – it is much easier for me to assess your instrument if you are not fretting about Parking Wardens!
The shop is wheelchair accessible. The door is 88cm wide and there is a small (2-3cm) step. There are a number of seats inside which you are welcome to make use of. If you have a blue badge you can park on the single yellow line immediately outside the shop, but please note that due to Greenways restrictions, even blue badge holders cannot park here after 4.30pm.
Take the Tram from just outside the main terminal building and alight at Princess Street. Cross on to the south side of Princes Street (adjacent to the gardens) and take one of the buses listed above to Tollcross.
Finally, after several years of nagging, both Apple and Google know about Lochrin Buildings, so you shouldn’t have any bother finding me with their respective map apps. Just make sure your phone is somewhere secure on your dashboard and not in your hand while you’re driving.
