Visiting the office?

The Engender office is now closed until further notice due to Covid-19. Please see above for more details.

Our office address is:

10 Old Tolbooth Wynd



The Engender offices can be a little difficult to find, so we recommend not just following Google!

Old Tolbooth Wynd is between Calton Road and the Royal Mile, and there is step-free access if you approach from Calton Road. If you are getting the train through, it is 5 minute walk down the road from the back (Calton Road) exit of Waverley station.

If you are coming from the Royal Mile direction, we are down the cobbled street under the Tolbooth Clock.

There are signs within the close itself directing you to number 10, and you can call the office on 0131 558 9596 if you get stuck!
