I usually park on Holyrood Park Road, down the hill (about 300 yards NNE) from the Commonwealth pool, just below the entrance to Pollock Halls student residences. From there, walk down the road, through the gate posts, bear rightwards across the roundabout, then head across the grass to a path (just south of the H of the words Gutted Haddie on the OS map), then head leftwards on a path rising up below the obvious crags (Salisbury crags). Follow this path a few hundred yards, then the South Quarry is the obvious, deeply indented part of the crags on the right.

At the beginning and end of the season we often have a meal, after an evening at the crags, in Pizza Express at 111 Holyrood Road, EH8 8AU - see map.
