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. The dancing surface, which was relayed a couple of years ago, is similar to the covering of some children's playgrounds, and so is slightly springy and rather non-slip, so many types of footwear will be found comfortable. (The new surface replaced the hard flagstones visible in some of pictures and videos on this website.)
