Royal Blind School - Edinburgh
Entrance and Parking
Enter via the main gate. There are car parking facilities available here. From the car park turn right, away from the main school building. Walk towards the Braille Press building and this will pass you on the left. There will be garages on the right hand side and just after these on the right you will find the Swimming Pool.
It is of vital importance that cars are only parked in the designated car parking bays. The children in the school are visually impaired and are familiar with the walkways laid out for them and parking cars within close proximity of these routes must be avoided at all times. Your cooperation in this matter is vital in order that we can continue to use this facility.
