We have a wonderful city and for those of you travelling in from other countries, we recommend staying a few extra days to explore the alley ways and haunted vaults of this historical haven. Please note: Edinburgh is a very busy tourist city, DO NOT wait until it is too late to book your accommodation. Everywhere fills up really fast. NO camping facilities.

If you are looking for affordable accommodation we are delighted to offer Heavy Scotland guests a whopping 15% discount at the Tune Hotel  www.tunehotels.com

Use the discount code  HEAVYSCOT when booking
The discount is valid from 30 March – 3 April inclusive and will give you 15% off the best available rates including the add-ons (TV, WIFI, hairdryer, in-room safe, Towels & Toiletries)

The train station is directly opposite the hotel and there are also busses running to the venue. The after party venue is located a short bus ride away in the centre of town and the airport bus will drop you off directly outside the hotel- so this is the perfect place to stay during your visit.

For those of you who are travelling in groups, three of the most affordable options for apartments are the Asga apartments located in the city centre www.tonyasgaapartments.com

The Sakina, Tony and Asga apartments sleep 4 or 5 and offer some of the best prices in the city.

If you are looking to stay in the centre of town, closer to the nightlife and after party you may wish to stay at the Cowgate Hostel or the Apex hotel, which boasts gorgeous views of the castle and an indoor swimming pool. Both are in heart of our city and minutes walking distance from a number of metal clubs and bars, as well as a 10 minute stroll to our warm up and after party venue.

Or perhaps you prefer to use booking.com, AirBnB or hostelworld.com to find your own gem, whatever your choice, there are a number of transport options to get to the festival venue and we will be running a bus directly from the festival to the after party venue on Saturday night after the last band.

See you in April metalheads!
