Ainslie Park Map

Getting to the Ground:

Travelling to Ainslie Park is relatively straightforward. We are based in the North of Edinburgh and well served by public transport.

Lothian Buses services number 21 and 27 head along Ferry Road and you should get off the bus outside / opposite Morrison’s Supermarket, which is at the Crewe Toll end of the road.

You can also use the numbers 19, 22, 24, 29, 37.  These all make their way to Crewe Toll – just past the Western General Hospital and before the Village Hotel.

It is a 5 minute walk from Crewe Toll along Ferry Road, turning left onto Pilton Drive once you pass Morrison’s.

For more information on these bus route and timetables please visit

For fans travelling by train, Waverley Station or Haymarket are your two choices.

Car Parking at Ainslie Park is likely to be limited at best, unlikely at most as it will be very busy on match day.  Please do park responsibly and safely as both the football club and the neighbouring Leisure Centre will have many children enjoying themselves at both venues.

Local on street parking will be available (please park responsibly) or you could nip into nearby Morrisons for your messages before the game and walk round to the ground.

 Entry to Ainslie Park:

Turnstiles will open an hour before kick-off.  The four turnstiles at the Pilton Drive entrance will be used for home and away fans.

Two of the turnstiles will be cash only, two of them will take cards and also be used for those who have bought tickets in advance on Fanbase.
