The 35 bus stops on Canongate.
The 36 bus stops on Holyrood Road, a few minutes walk uphill to the Library.
Crichton’s Close parking restrictions (double yellow lines) do not allow parking at any time, although unloading is allowed.
It is not possible to drive from the Canongate into Crichton’s Close, although taxis are usually willing to stop on the Canongate beside Crichton’s Close to let passengers out. Taxis and other cars can also drive up to the close from Holyrood Road: ask the driver to find the Tun building on Holyrood Road, then turn up Gentle’s Entry and turn right into Crichton’s Close.
