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 we can pick you up at the bus terminus in Balerno. Contact us in advacne to organise any of the above: 075 0443 8763.

Haughhead Farm - 2 stars B&B in a Farm.

Tel: +44 (0) 131 449 3875


Address: Haughhead Farm, Balerno, Edinburgh, EH14 7JH

This B&B is 25 min walking to get to where we are. Beautiful area to stay, however as it is in a farm it is not so easy to access if you dont have a car. It is not on a bus route and there are no shops near by. If you are coming by car and want a quiet weekend in the country to integrate the work, the place is ideal.
