The stadium should be visible on your right as you pass the zoo and is signposted.
From the South
All major routes (A68, A7, A70, A71, A702) from the south into Edinburgh meet the A720 city bypass. Continue west on this until the Gogar roundabout and follow the instructions above for travelling from the west.

Take the M9 towards Edinburgh and continue its junction with the M8 at Newbridge. From the Newbridge roundabout, take the A8 signposted for the City Centre and continue past the Royal Highland Showground and the airport towards the Gogar roundabout. Before reaching the roundabout, move into the outside lane and use the underpass to bypass it. Carry straight on and follow the instructions above for travelling from the west.
From Princes Street

As you approach Haymarket, all traffic is directed left off West Maitland St and then right onto Morrison St till you are facing a forked junction at Haymarket Station.
