Sighthill is 6 miles west of Edinburgh city centre. Bus numbers 3, 3A, 25, and 34 run from Princes Street to the Bankhead roundabout (about 30 minutes). The Archives is a 10 minute walk from there.

Alternatively the Bathgate and Dunblane train services from Edinburgh Waverley and Haymarket both stop at Edinburgh Park station (approximately 10 minutes). Again, the Archives is a 10 minute walk away.

Limited space is available in the car park but there is also on-street car parking. There is no canteen on site, but tea and coffee facilities are available.
