Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Campus

About the Area

Heriot-Watt University's Edinburgh Campus occupies 380 acres of mature meadow and woodland at Riccarton to the south west of Edinburgh, near Currie. It is six minutes from Edinburgh airport, and some 20 minutes from the city centre by car. The site reflects the university's vocational, science and industry focus with the Edinburgh Conference Centre (not to be confused with the EICC) and a large Research Park.
