The path provides an excellent walking connection to the bus stops at Bush Farm Road end. Lothian Buses Service 15 can be accessed at these bus stops.
Shower, changing and locker facilities are available in each of the buildings at the Easter Bush Campus. To find out exactly where facilities are located in each building ask at the relevant reception.

To support and encourage staff to get more active during their working day, the University is supporting a number of walking groups at various University sites. These walking groups are simply a way of getting out and about at lunchtime and participating in walking as a means of getting healthier and fitter.
These groups aren't competitive and walks are at a comfortable pace. The walks are local to the area and will last 15-25 minutes, leaving plenty of time to have your lunch.
The groups are led by University staff who have an interest in walking and who have been fully trained as a walk leader by the Health and Safety Department.
The Easter Bush Campus travel map shows some walking routes which can be enjoyed as a lunchtime walk. The campus is situated in a beautiful rural area with plenty of walking routes immediately around the campus. Alternatively Roslin Glen is particularly scenic and only 2.5 miles from the campus.
