The history of our Buildings
Old Moray House is one of the few remaining original aristocratic buildings in the Canongate and is the oldest building in the University of Edinburgh
Getting around Edinburgh
The easiest way to get around Edinburgh is by walking (the city centre is quite small) or by bus.
The Lothian buses are maroon and white, both single and double deckers. They run bus services across the city and to outlying areas, most of Edinburgh has a very good bus service. They offer a student ridacard which can be bought weekly or monthly. Standard adult fare is £1.30 per journey, so if you’re going to be making more than 10 journeys a week it is a good idea to get the ridacard.
Lothian buses also have travel shops in the city centre. The nearest one to Moray House is at 31 Waverley Bridge, EH1 1BQ.
First Edinburgh buses
First Edinburgh is the second bus operator in Edinburgh.
Edinburgh has 2 main train stations, Waverly and Haymarket. Waverley station is a 5 minute walk from Moray House. A number of different rail operators have services to and from Edinburgh. Scotrail runs most services within Scotland (e.g. there is a train every 15 minutes to Glasgow, the journey takes about 55 minutes). National Express and virgin trains run the services from Edinburgh south. The journey by train to London can take as little as four and a half hours.
