Getting here by bike​

Edinburgh is home to an expanding network of cycle paths, making travelling by bike a great option for getting to campus. We have created a YouTube playlist showing cycle routes to and from Craiglockhart campus​.

There are many different route options for travelling between our sites. What we've shown in our films are the routes that, as far as possible, use off road cycling, walking and wheeling. Visit www.cyclestreets.net​ for more options including on-road routes.

​There are 81 bicycle spaces at Craiglockhart, 42 covered and 39 uncovered. Craiglockhart currently has no secure locked facilities but there is CCTV throughout the site.

The bike store is under the main staircase into the building. There is one covered shelter and some Sheffield stands located under the stairs.

We have limited shower facilities available at Craiglockhart. If you'd like more information about accessing them, please contact environment@napier.ac.uk
