The nearest Tram stop is at Ingliston Park and Ride; this is a 20 minute walk from the campsite, or you can drive there (5 mins) and park for free (a great option if you have young children).
Trams run DAILY from 6.20am, with the last one returning from the city at 22.50pm. We recommend you download the Edinburgh Trams App for live updates as times are subject to change during the festival season.
You can pay your fare by the app, cash or card at the machines at the tram stops.
N.B. In our experience you are best off buying single journeys as it means you can use any of the different transport companies.
Please also be aware that most buses and public transport are asking customers to go concatless, and may not provide change back if you choose to pay in cash.
You can easily plan your travel at Travellinescotland.com , they provide up to date timetables and routes, all you need to do is put in your start location.
NB: For public transport we reccomned you use either ‘Ratho Station, Opp Station Road On Glasgow Road’ as the from/to location, or ‘Ingliston Park & Ride (Edinburgh Trams)’ from location only due to its dual carriageway location.
When using Google mapping and google travel services simply search for ‘Edinburgh Festival Camping’. We are listed as a Google location.
