If you are driving to the city from outside, you may find the Park and Ride schemes at Ingleston and Sheriffhall on the 48 bus route, or at Straiton on the 47 useful.

Does it matter what I wear?

As you will see in the photos and videos throughout this site, there is no special dress code. It is a good idea to bring an extra layer to wear while sitting out. Men are encouraged to wear kilts but it is not essential. Note that the dancing surface in the gardens has recently been relaid, and we do not have experience of dancing on it yet. We are told that the new surface is similar to the surface often used in children's playgrounds. This probably means that it will not have much slip, but will be much softer than the former flagstones.
