accommodation

Please note that because the Shamanic Centre is also our family residency, we are not able to offer accommodation. Below are the closest B&Bs and a travelodge near Balerno Village which we recommend. We are 4 or 5 miles from the Airport and 8 miles from the City Centre.

For those coming by train from Glasgow or other areas, we are about 10 minutes driving from two small village train stations called Kirknewton and Curryhill. We can pick you up there with prior arrangements. There are no taxis at the two small village stations.

If you are coming from Edinburgh City Centre, the easiest way is to take the bus 44 or 44A from Princes Street to Balerno and follow the instructions below. If you need more details you can text us on: phone  075-0443-8763.
