Getting to the venue


Cars can access the campus via a sliproad off the A1 southbound, between the exit for Newcraighall/Craigmillar and the Old Craighall Roundabout. Drivers should note that the access by car is not permitted via Whitehall Farm Road (by Musselburgh Station).


We have two rail stations close to campus operating Scotrail services. Musselburgh Station is directly at the campus entrance and runs hourly services taking you into town in 6 minutes. Newcraighall Park and Ride Station is a short 15 minute walk or a bus ride (30) away. The bus from the park and ride/station car park leaves from the Cuddy Brae Pub, and the return bus stops right next to the park and ride. The lines operating at these stations are:

  • North Berwick Line (Musselburgh Station)
  • Newcraighall Line (Newcraighall Park and Ride Station)

For times and tickets go to the Scotrail website.


The Lothian Buses, number 30 service and N30 (Night Bus) come onto campus, as well as the 45. The 30 and 45 travel through Edinburgh city centre, while the Lothian 30 also travels through East Lothian.

The number 30 runs approximately every 10 minutes throughout the day, and the 45 runs every 30 minutes. Bus services take approximately 30-40 minutes from the city centre to campus.

Prentice of Haddington 111 runs in close proximity to the campus. This is free to QMU students.
