Directions to the Chapel
From Outside Edinburgh
From the A720 (city bypass), continue until you reach the Sheriffhall Roundabout.
Take the second exit, signposted Old Craighall (A6106) and continue on this road to a small roundabout with an Inn (The Cockatoo) on the right. Turn left at this roundabout (signposted Newton/Danderhall) and continue on a fairly winding road for about 2 miles to a set of traffic lights at The Wisp.
Turn left at the lights into Niddrie Mains Road – go through 3 sets of pedestrian lights.Following the sign to the Chapel, after the third set of lights, take the second left turning into Craigmillar Castle Avenue: the entrance to The Thistle Foundation is on the left. The Robin Chapel is situated at the end of the driveway. There are parking spaces in front of the main building.
From the City Centre (Princes Street)
From Princes Street travel up North & South Bridge (the Bridges). (If you want to catch a bus it can be caught either here or at the top of Leith Walk, numbers 2,14, 30, 32 will take you to just outside The Thistle Foundation on Niddrie Mains Road). If you are driving just follow the road without taking any turning until you reach a roundabout (near Cameron Toll). At this roundabout turn left, you will then come to a small roundabout at which you should go straight on. Ahead will be another roundabout (with traffic lights) and you should be in the right hand lane. You will be taking the second exit (A6095 signposted Musselburgh) into Peffermill Road, which will soon become Niddrie Mains Road. Follow the road and you will come to a crossroads with lights –stay in the right hand lane- and go straight across. You will pass by some shops and will shortly see The Robin Chapel signposted. Turn right into Craigmillar Castle Avenue: the entrance to The Thistle Foundation is on the left. The Robin Chapel is situated at the end of the driveway. There are parking spaces in front of the main building.
