Other road closures
The High Road is currently closed to vehicles, with a one-way system in operation for cyclists. Dunsapie Loch Car Park also remains closed to vehicles at present.
For closure updates please follow us on Twitter (#hsclosure) or visit our closure page. We also notify @edintravel of any closures.
Park roads may open or close for longer or at other times.
This may happen because of:
- maintenance work
- a large public event
- an accident
- rock fall
- ice and snow
We publicise details of additional or extended road closures on radio, Twitter and traffic news services. Yellow information signs may also be used in the park to give advance warning of changes, where it is practical to do so.

From time to time park roads are closed due to external events. Details are available to download in PDF format from this page and are accurate at the time of production, but subject to change. The most up to date information can be found on the organisers' website.
