Packing Tips

Edinburgh can be colder and wetter than anticipated in March. Bring easily layerable clothing, gloves, good walking shoes, and a raincoat. Please note that the style of dress for the training is casual.

Finding Lodging:

Edinburgh is a very walkable city with excellent public transportation options, safe taxis, easily accessible Ubers, and extremely limited parking. We highly recommend reserving lodging at the DoubleTree Hotel or in the area surrounding the training location. also has many accomodation options to search -ranging from hotels, to apartments to entire homes.

Arrival & Transportation:

Edinburgh Airport is the closest airport to the training venue and easy to navigate. Taxis can be quickly found by following the signs from baggage claim, are highly regulated, and very safe. Credit cards (Visa and Mastercard) are accepted, and most are contactless (touch to pay). Receipts can be texted or emailed if needed.

Glasgow Airport may be an option for some attendees. While a bit further in distance from the training location, taxis are still easily found and reasonable in cost.

Food & Drink:

There are many, many cafes, pubs, restaurants, markets, and food stands within easy walking distance of the training location. Almost all take payment via contactless credit card. The water in Edinburgh is completely safe to drink directly from the faucet. 


Almost all museums and galleries in Scotland are accessible free of charge.
In Edinburgh, we recommend the National Museum of Scotland, the Writers Museum, the Museum of Edinburgh, the People’s Story Museum, and the Scottish National Gallery.
Holyrood Palace and Edinburgh Castle are can’t miss experiences if you can make the time.
