Exterior The apartment is located within a complex of eighteen apartments that was developed from a late three story Victorian Territorial Army training and administration centre. It retains many of the period features including the arched entrance to the secure parking area and communal garden. The apartment can be accessed through a main door to a communal hallway and then an internal front door. Access is also by way of a rear door from the parking area.
-- By Car --
Whether approaching from North, South or West, the easiest way to give directions to anybody arriving in the City for the first time, is by way of the city by- pass which creates the landward boundary. The by-pass is numbered the A720 and gives connections to all of the city’s arterial routes.
The most convenient way to reach the apartment is the A702. Leaving the by-pass by this route you should follow the signs for the City Centre. Stay on this main road all the way into the city until you see the castle on the horizon and you approach the Kings Theatre on your right. The Kings Theatre is an important landmark for you, as this is where you turn immediately left into Gilmore Place (the street sign also bears the name Lochrin Buildings). The apartment is accessed via Hailes Street which is first on the left.
-- By Bus --
The number 10 & 27 bus routes are along Gilmore Place, both buses stopping approximately twenty meters before the apartment. These buses can be caught in either Princes Street (10) or in Hanover Street (27) in the City Centre.
-- From the Airport --
The journey into the city from the Airport can be made via one of the frequent Airport buses, City Tram, No 35 bus or directly by taxi.
Allocated secure parking is provided.
