Parking in Edinburgh city centre is notoriously difficult and unfortunately the Club holds no parking spaces of its own. There are a few options depending on whether your top priority is cost, convenience or security:
- On street parking directly outside the Club.
Parking on Abercromby Place is metered Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 6.30pm and Sunday from 12.30pm-6.30pm at a cost of £4.90 per hour. There is a restricted maximum stay of 4 hours during ticketing times after which you are required to move the car to a new space and re-ticket. Parking on Abercromby place is free outside of the hours above.
- 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 £4.40 per hour. Both streets are also restricted to a maximum stay of four hours during ticketing times after which you are required to move the car to a new space and re-ticket. Although this street is free on both Saturdays and Sundays and outside of the hours above.
- Q Park Omni is the closest multi-storey car park to the Royal Scots Club.
