Worth a visit


Visit date:


We reached the Collective by travelling up the road up Carlton Hill, it was steep in places and I was glad we didn't meet a car travelling in the opposite direction. Once we arrived we went straight to the Collective as it was the first time I had been up Carlton Hill since it has opened. It was great to see the buildings in use again and I plan to return when the exhibitions change.

Transport & Parking


Parking is available for blue badge holders and I believe you could also get a taxi to take you up the hill. For those not bringing a car, it is a steep climb with steps or via the road. Once at the bottom of Carlton Hill there are lots of nearby bus stops and a short walk to Waverley Train Station.



Overall, the access was good and signage was clear. There were a few sections with loose stone which may make it a bit challenging for some wheelchair users.



The accessible toilets were clean and tidy and everything looked new and in good working order.



The staff that we met were friendly and happy to chat and find out more about our visit.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

This spot offers iconic views of Edinburgh and is worth a visit for the views alone. The exhibitions inside change so it is worth checking what is on before you visit. I've been told that the guided tour is worth checking out to hear more about the history of the buildings.
