Edinburgh International Airport is served by scheduled national and international flights. The airport is on the west of the city, just 3 miles from the Edinburgh Conference Centre. The journey by taxi takes about 10 minutes and a regular bus service links the airport and the city centre.

The mainline rail network serves the centre of Edinburgh well. Edinburgh Waverley is at the east end of Princes Street and Haymarket station is at the west end. Situated 1 mile from Edinburgh Campus, Curriehill is the nearest local rail station to Heriot-Watt University. Trains to this station go from Edinburgh Waverley, Haymarket and Glasgow Central. There is a limited Sunday service.

Alternatively Edinburgh Park Station is situated 2 miles from Edinburgh Campus. Trains to this station go from Edinburgh Waverley, Haymarket, Newcraighall, North Berwick, Dunblane, Bathgate and Glasgow Queen Street. There are limited Sunday services except from Newcraighall.

Please note both Curriehill and Edinburgh Park stations are quite isolated and Curriehill has no street lighting so onward travel to Edinburgh Campus is advisable by a pre booked taxi.

Heriot-Watt University is situated half a mile west of the Calder Junction exit from the A720 city bypass. The bypass connects with the A8/M8 and M9 (west and central Scotland), A1 (east and south) and A7 and A68 (Borders and south).
