Please arrive at the Castle Esplanade (Map) at 6.50pm. Delegates and guests will
be transported from there to the Great Hall within the Castle complex.
Scottish Parliament (Map) The main entrance to the Scottish Parliament can be found
on the East of the building immediately opposite the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Early arrival will be essential for Saturday sessions to allow all delegates through
the Parliament's security in time for the start:
Please arrive prior to 9.20am.
Following security screening, delegates will be able to enjoy tea and coffee, and
have an opportunity to see the John Bellany exhibition, prior to being taken to the
Debating Chamber. Latecomers will be seated in the public gallery rather than the
debating chamber itself.
As the Scottish Parliament is open to all, partners can come and go during the session,
sitting in the public gallery.
National Museum of Scotland (Map) Delegates should enter the Museum through the Lothian
Street entrance rather than the main Chambers Street entrance.
