This off-site car park which prides itself on its green credentials is a two to three minute transfer from the airport and shuttle buses operate, when requested, 24 hours a day. Your car will be parked by a member of the team so it is necessary to leave your keys with Reception. The car park is fully secure with regular guard and dog patrols, CCTV and floodlighting. Make sure you do not confuse this car park with the similarly named Scot Park as this is a completely different operation.

Directions information


Please be aware that satellite navigation systems are not guaranteed to take you directly to the car park so please use the directions provided below. The providers cannot be held responsible if you fail to locate the car park or are delayed.

Leave the M9 at junction 1, taking the exit for the A8 Glasgow Road at the roundabout. After a mile and a half, take the left onto Ingliston Road just before the main airport turn off, and then take the first right onto Fairview Road. The car park will be on your left.

Please make sure you do not enter 'SCOT PARK' as this is the NCP car park and is not the car park you are booked into. You must go to Flying Scot parking.

Arrival procedure information

Arrival procedure

On arrival, please park in one of the bays outside the reception and head inside to check in. You will have to show your confirmation and hand in your keys. The car park's staff will give you a receipt and park your car for you. There's a free transfer bus to the terminal.

Departure information

Departure procedure

On your return, please call the car park so they can send the shuttle bus to pick you up. You can call them on 0131 335 3868 or use the courtesy phones in the arrivals hall by the front doors. You can then make your way to stand 7 for the bus.

Please show the receipt you were given at the car park to the bus driver when the bus arrives and they will take you back to the reception where your car will be waiting. Then check out at reception and you'll be given back your keys along with a PIN to open the exit barrier.

Additional information

Please arrive at the car park at least 30 minutes before your earliest recommended check-in time. You will be required to leave your keys with the attendant.

The car park can't take vans or large commercial vehicles in the car park, or vehicles taller than 1.81 metres (6ft) or wider than 2 metres.

If you are looking to park a trailer, please call the provider to confirm whether it can be accommodated.

Full on-site valet services available at extra cost.

You will need to take a copy of your confirmation with you to the car park.

The Flying Scot driver will inspect your car and make note of any damage, but if you're not there when it’s inspected, you can’t claim for any problems. If you're worried, you can be there when they do and make sure the notes are right, but you’ll need to let Flying Scot know before you arrive and it will take half an hour and cost £5.

The Royal Highland show is running in the local area. Make sure you allow plenty of extra time to get to the airport, to allow for possible delays.

23.50 Sunday night. 30 minutes after calling, bus turns up. Tell driver we are not happy. Then begins a tirade of threats and abuse. My five year old is almost in tears. Driver even threatens to take us to police because I said I wanted to record the conversation. Pay a little extra and avoid this company.

The staff especially the driver were courteous and cheery When we phoned to be collected from the airport they came immediately so there was no long waiting times to get to the car I would definitely use this car parking service again

Waited 25 minutes for pick up while multiple shuttles buses for other parks did the run several times. Was always answering machine when I called which didn’t fill me with confidence they were even there or on their way. Wouldn’t use again.
