Directions -

By Bus/Car -

Take the A701 (number 37/37a) towards Penicuik & you'll come to the village of Bilston (8 miles south of Edinburgh). Just as you come into the village there is a metal gated footpath (opposite the large VW garage). Go through this & down the path till you come to the bridge, & you'll see us… Next door to the VW garage is "The Bilston Inn" where we get our water (no honest we get water there :) They'll happily give you directions once you get into Bilston :)
