Travelling to Perth
The conference is being held in the City of Perth, which is approximately 40 miles north of Edinburgh, Scotland's capital.
If you are travelling to the conference by air, the nearest major airport is Edinburgh airport. Other airports are in Dundee (regional airport with links to London, 20 miles from Perth) and Glasgow international airport (70 miles from Perth).
Airport transfers by coach from Edinburgh airport to Perth will be available on Saturday 3 October, Sunday 4 October and early morning/afternoon of Thursday 8 October 2015. The cost of this transfer service is about the same as for public transport, but you may find it more convenient, as it will be direct; if you use public transport, you may have to change.
There are two options for you to choose from:
- Airport transfer - return (£25): we are offering this service from Edinburgh airport to Perth city centre on Saturday 3 October and Sunday 4 October only. If you select the 'return' option during the online registration process, transport will also be provided from the conference venue (Perth Concert Hall) to Edinburgh airport on Thursday 8 October early morning (at approx 0800) and soon after the conference ends by 1300. If there is sufficient demand, we will also offer transfers back on Friday 9 October.
- Airport transfer - one way only (£15): we are also offering one-way transport (Edinburgh airport-Perth or Perth-Edinburgh airport) for £15.
We will not be able to provide an airport transfer to meet every flight but we will aim to provide a service approximately every 2-3 hours. You will be transported to Perth Concert Hall which is in Perth city centre. Most hotels/bed and breakfasts are within a 10/15-minute walk from Perth Concert Hall and taxis will also be available close by.
We will contact you nearer the time to ask for details about your flight arrival and departure times.
If you prefer not to use the transfer service, it is quite simple to travel independently from Edinburgh airoprt to Perth by train or bus. More information about travel to Perth by train or bus can be found on the Traveline, Citylink, Megabus and National Rail websites.
