Auchencairn + Bengairn Drone (5 of 11).jpg

We'll be holding our celebration at Collin House, just outside the village of Auchencairn, in the area of Dumfries & Galloway, South West Scotland.

The most convenient way to get to Auchencairn is by car. Sadly, there is no train station in Auchencairn and the nearest station is in Dumfries (30 min drive) or Lockerbie (1 hr drive). If you do plan to take the train, you'll also need to make use of taxis, which we've listed further down the page.

You
could walk to Collin House from the village, but we wouldn't recommend it as you'd have to walk along a main road (with no sidewalk). Tap the above address and it'll open up in Google Maps, and it'll lead you to the door of Collin House.

On the day of the party, there will be parking at Collin House, but if you'd rather arrange a taxi for drop off and pick up, we've listed some taxi companies below.

For those of you travelling from abroad, further down the page you'll find a few details on best airports to fly into.

Travelling from Abroad

The closest international airports are:

Edinburgh Airport (EDI)
Glasgow Airport (GLA)
Glasgow Prestwick (PIK)

Edinburgh and Glasgow will have the most options when it comes to international flights. Glasgow Prestwick only does flights to mainland Europe on low-cost carriers. 

From Edinburgh and Glasgow, you'll then have to rent a car, or get a train to Dumfries or Lockerbie, followed by taxis to Auchencairn.

From North America: Delta & United do direct flights to Edinburgh from New York, Boston, D.C. and Chicago. 

From Asia: Best options seem to be Emirates flight direct to Glasgow, or Qatar and Turkish flights direct to Edinburgh.

From Africa:
 There are no non-stop flights from the entire continent of Africa (if you find one, tell us!).

From Europe: you've got lots of options.

If you're flying into London then you've got plenty of choices. You'll then have to drive or take the train to Carlisle (where you could rent a car) and then another train to Dumfries.
