    Okay, it's either brave or foolish, but I'm going to risk posting directions now, and hopefully won't have to change them between now and the big day! As you get nearer you will see signs for Bonaly campsite - you can follow them as I'm sending you on the same route!

    If driving from the East or South:
    Take the A720 (city bypass) westbound/clockwise.
    Turn off at Dreghorn Junction, go over the flyover and along Dreghorn Link.
    Go straight on at first roundabout.
    At second roundabout take first exit - Redford Road (B701)
    At the T junction turn left onto Colinton Road.
    Take the left fork at the junction (left side of the railings, don’t go down the hill) which is Woodhall Road
    Take 3rd left (Bonaly Road) and carry on up the hill, over the flyover and beyond.
    The road becomes quite narrow as you carry on uphill. Eventually you will see the entrance on your left (honest!).

    If driving from the North
    Take the A720 (city bypass) eastbound/anticlockwise.
    Turn off at Dreghorn Junction, go left along Dreghorn Link.
    Go straight on at first roundabout.
    At second roundabout take first exit - Redford Road (B701)
    At the T junction turn left onto Colinton Road.
    Take the left fork at the junction (left side of the railings, don’t go down the hill) which is Woodhall Road
    Take 3rd left (Bonaly Road) and carry on up the hill, over the flyover and beyond.
    The road becomes quite narrow as you carry on uphill. Eventually you will see the entrance on your left (honest!).

    If coming by Train then Bus
    Get off at Waverley Station, go up the exit ramp (behind Boots) onto Waverley Bridge.
    Turn right (uphill) towards Princes Street.
    At the top of the hill, cross Waverley Bridge and go along past the Scott Monument (big pinnacle thing) to the second bus stop, to catch a No. 10 Bus. (Lothian Buses, which are white, with red and gold). The fare is a flat rate of £1.20 – exact money only.
    Ask the driver to let you off on Woodhall Road (which is near the terminus) – around a 30 minute journey. We will arrange a shuttle service up the hill.
    On the Friday the buses are every 12 minutes.

    If coming from the west – PM me!
