Meeting Point

We're not far from where the North Bridge intersects with the Royal Mile (the name of the succession of streets that run from the Castle downhill to Holyrood Palace). The 'Bank Hotel' is the easiest building to identify at this junction. Head down the hill, past the Radisson Blue Hotel on your right, and we're the blue building on the corner of Blackfriars Street. You can't miss us!
