Spartans v Berwick: Updated Travel Information

Scottish CupWith the Scottish Cup tie against Spartans less than 48 hours away, the Berwick Rangers Travel Club has put together some travel information in order to try and get as many Berwick fans up to Ainslie Park as possible to get behind the team in their quest for a place in the quarter-finals.

Travelling by car:

Pilton Drive is closed from the nearby Morrison’s supermarket to Ainslie Park. The recommended way around this is to go to the Crewe Toll roundabout and take the Pilton exit, go underneath the bridge and head right onto Pilton Avenue then another right onto Pilton Drive. Diversions are in place at the Crewe Toll roundabout and for more clarity, click here.


No parking will be available at the Ainslie Park Leisure Centre so fans have been advised to park in one of the streets near to the ground. For those travelling from Edinburgh city centre, parking will be available off Ferry Road on East Fettes Avenue. The area around the ground is likely to be very congested so fans are asked to leave extra time for their journey.

Travelling by bus:

The bus organised by the Travel Club is almost full with just TWO seats remaining as of tonight (February 5). If you want to reserve a seat, don’t hesitate to contact either George Thompson (07764189983) or Allistair Grieve (07969808732).

The bus departs Shielfield Park at 12pm and will return shortly after full-time. Pick-ups can be arranged en route. Price: Adults £10, U16s £5.

Travelling by train:

Likely to be the choice of many fans looking to sample the unusual delights of an away day in Edinburgh, there are many services which will get into Waverley before kick-off.

For the early birds, the first train is at 7.22am with other services at 8.24am, 8.33am, 9.32am, 10.20am, 10.40am, 11.40am, 12.20pm and 12.40pm. Return journey times are 5.30pm, 6.08pm, 6.30pm with the final departure at 7pm.
