Location

Castle Craig is within easy reach of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Carlisle and Newcastle. For patients living further away, the latter two cities have mainline rail stations and airports with national as well as international links. We meet most patients at Edinburgh airport and we can also pick up people from Glasgow, Newcastle or even Manchester airports.
