The venue is Inveralmond Community High School, Willowbank, Ladywell, Livingston, EH54 6HW. If you are arriving by road, there will be AA signage directing you to the school from the directions of the Edinburgh/ Glasgow motorway.

If you will be arriving by public transport, the nearest train station is Livingston North. You should consider taking a taxi from this station as conditions to walk to the venue from the train station can be unsuitable at points and on highway roads.


There is limited parking at Inveralmond Community High School but there is a drop-off point, and parking in the surrounding streets.

Buses and coaches must drop-off players in the school car-park, and then depart. We recommend that drivers wait at Livingston Stadium EH54 7DN. 

Spaces for people with disabilities are available close to the venue entrance. Please show your disabled badge to the parking steward on duty as you arrive.
