From Edinburgh & the East

From the A720 City Bypass take the M8 and follow signs for Stirling to join the M9. Alternatively, from Corstorphine and Maybury, take the A8 past Edinburgh Airport and join the M9 for Stirling at Newbridge Roundabout. Leave the motorway at junction 3 and turn right for Bo'ness, and turn right again after another mile, following the brown tourist signs for the Steam Railway.

Note that from Barnton, Cramond & N.W. Edinburgh it is more convenient to take the A90 for the Forth Road Bridge and follow signs to join the A904 for Bo'ness, but avoid this route when there is likely to be congestion on the Forth Road Bridge approaches.

From Fife & the North

Take the M90/A90 to the Forth Road Bridge. Leave at the junction immediately south of the bridge and at the traffic-light-controlled roundabout turn right onto the A904 for Bo'ness. In about 7 miles at a T-junction turn right on the A904, and turn right again after another mile, following the brown tourist signs for the Steam Railway.

From Glasgow & the West

From Glasgow take the M80/A80 or from Lanarkshire take the M73/A80 following signs for Stirling and Kincardine Bridge. Shortly after passing Cumbernauld the A80 again becomes the M80. At junction 5 take the M876 for Kincardine Bridge, which joins the M9 for Edinburgh. Leave at junction 5 then turn right on the A905. At the roundabout turn left, then take the next turn right for Bo'ness (still the A905). This road joins the A904 at a small roundabout and shortly before reaching Bo'ness crosses the railway on a new bridge. Turn left following the brown tourist signs for the Steam Railway.

From Stirling & Dunblane

Take the M9 for Edinburgh. Leave at junction 5 then turn right on the A905. At the roundabout turn left, then take the next turn right for Bo'ness (still the A905). This road joins the A904 at a small roundabout and shortly before reaching Bo'ness crosses the railway on a new bridge. Turn left following the brown tourist signs for the Steam Railway.


By Rail

The nearest main-line station is Linlithgow which is served by frequent ScotRail trains from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling/Dunblane. Details of services are available from National Rail Travel Information.
There is a regular bus service from Linlithgow to Bo'ness. Leave the station by the main building, walk down to the main road, then turn left. Catch a bus from the bus stop about 100 yards away, on the same side of the road as the station. Either alight at the bus station, or preferably outside the Tesco supermarket.
