How to get here

Location and how to get to The Roslin Institute.

The Institute forms part of the University of Edinburgh's Easter Bush Veterinary Campus, approximately 7miles/11km south of the centre of the City of Edinburgh.

At the heart of a growing cluster of bioscience organisations, the Institute has good transport links with Edinburgh, other parts of Scotland, and international destinations.


From the North, West, and East, join the Edinburgh City bypass (A720). Take the bypass to Straiton Interchange and follow the A701 (sign-posted for Penicuik and Pe ebles) past IKEA, to Bilston. Continue straight on at the Bilston mini-roundabout and take a right at the lights onto A703, Seafield Moor Road. Take the next left and follow the road until you get to the Easter Bush Campus.

The journey time from the centre of Edinburgh is 20-30mins. The taxi fare for this journey is approximately £20.

Numerous other services operate along the A701 and A702, approximately 20 minutes' walk from the Campus.
