We are in Bruntsfield - if you need to ask your way!  We are on the south side of the city centre, so easily accessed from the Edinburgh Bypass.
From the Bypass turn off at the Lothianburn Road exit, towards the city centre.  You travel along Comiston Road and Morningside Road (a shopping area).
At the top of Morningside Road, at traffic lights, just after Waitrose, turn right into Church Hill.  This leads into Strathearn Place. Go straight ahead
at the traffic lights, into Strathearn Road and the Gillis Centre is just on the left (high wall and entrance gates).
