Parking at the Royal Scots Club
Parking in Edinburgh city centre is notoriously difficult but you have a few options depending on whether your top priority is cost, convenience or security. These are your options:
- On street parking directly outside the Club. Parking on Abercromby Place is metered Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 6.30pm at a cost of 50p every 15 minutes and restricted to a maximum stay of 4 hours. After the 4 hours you may move the car to a new space and re-ticket. This is an expensive and time consuming choice although location is convenient.
- On street parking one street north of the Club. Parking on Northumberland Street and Drummond Place is metered Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.30pm at a cost of 45p every 15 minutes, it is also restricted to a maximum stay of four hours but this is less of an issue as it is not metered on a Saturday. Depending on time of arrival and plans to use the car during your stay you can conceivably leave the car in one spot from Friday to Sunday and pay a minimum.
- NCP. There is a NCP at St James Centre 24 hour rates is £20.00. This NCP is approximately 10 minutes walk from the Club.
Which ever option you choose it would probably be best for you to come to the club, pay the meter opposite for 15 minutes, unload your things and reception can give you directions from the club.
