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 space at Ainslie Park is highly unlikely 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 at 6.30pm.  The four turnstiles at the Pilton Drive entrance will be used for all supporters.

Whilst there will be no strict segregation in operation, Dumbarton fans are encouraged to use the North section of the Main Stand and the North end terracing

The Newtown Roofing and Building Stand is our Family Stand and will house our young supporters who will be there to make plenty of noise with their singing and accompanying drums too!  


Toilet facilities are situated behind the main stand and in other designated areas.

Spartans Merchandise Hut:

Our shop beside the turnstiles will be open pre-match.

Match Programmes will be on sale priced £3.  Half Time Raffle £1 a ticket.
