How to get there

How to get here:

Flying

We are only an hour's drive from Edinburgh International airport and you can hire bike locally if you'd prefer not to fly with yours. Most major airlines will get you to Edinburgh but you can also fly to Glasgow or Newcastle if you don't mind a slightly longer drive (2 hours estimate). The best option is to hire a car but you can also arrange collections and shuttles with Go-Where Scotland.

Train

Innerleithen doesn't have a train station but you can get the train to Edinburgh Waverley. The number 62 bus will take you from central Edinburgh but won't be easy with bikes. Your best bet is to contact Go-Where or hire a car from Edinburgh.

Road

From Edinburgh

The easiest drive from Edinburgh takes you through Peebles and past the trail centre of Glentress. From the Edinburgh city bypass join the A701 and then A6094. Once at the Leadburn junction, join the A703 and head for Peebles. From there follow signs to Galashiels. We're right in the middle of the High Street in Innerleithen so very easy to find once you're here. Just look out for the red door.

From Newcastle

Head north on the A696 and then the A68 through Jedburgh and Newton St Boswells. Turn left onto the A6091 for Melrose and head for Galashiels. At Galashiels, join the A72 to Innerleithen.

From Glasgow

Join the M8 motorway heading for Edinburgh (East). At Newhouse take the A73 to Lanark. Once at Lanark the A721/A72 will take you to Peebles. Once there follow signs for Galashiels – taking you past Glentress trail centre and on to Innerleithen.

From Carlisle

After traveling north on the A74(M) turn onto the A701 at junction 15. Pass Moffat and continue on the A701 until you reach a right turn to Stobo (B712). You will eventually meet the A72 which will take you through Peebles and on to Innerleithen.
