The first of the Barracks that you come to as you struggle off the piss-poor M25 imitation that is Edinburgh's A 720 City bypass. (Redford Barracks is further down the road, turn right at the T-junction.) Used to be an impressive castle in there, before the MOD got its sticky mitts on it and, after years of neglect, knocked it down in 1955.

Currently home to 1st Battalion, Royal Regiment of Scotland (1 SCOTS), recently amalgamated from the 'First and Worst' and the KOSB.

Care should be taken to avoid, what with the introduction of PAYD &c, mistaking the Travelodge and Little Chef adjacent to the turn off for the barracks.
