MuraCon EU 2014 will be held the day before Scotch On the Rocks at the same location - the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Located in the stylish West End of Edinburgh's city center, the Hilton Edinburgh Grosvenor hotel combines a historical 1860's listed building with a chic and modern interior. The hotel boasts modern decor, yet retains stunning traditional features such as beautiful coving, ceilings and ornate staircases. Situated only 200 meters from Haymarket train station and a short walk from popular attractions including Edinburgh Castle, Princes Street and the Royal Mile, this unique Edinburgh hotel is the perfect base to explore Scotland's Capital.

Edinburgh airport has direct routes from many of the main European cities, as well as direct flights to Newark in the United States. You can find more information on the Edinburgh Airport website.
The hotel is approximately 7 miles from Edinburgh airport and is easily accessible via the Airlink 100 bus, or taxi.
The Airlink 100 runs every 10 minutes, and should take about 15 minutes to the hotel.
You can grab a taxi from outside the main terminal building. This shouldn't cost you any more than £15.
Haymarket Train Station is just a 5 minute walk from the hotel. It's location can be seen on the map to the top right. Edinburgh Waverley station is about a miles walk.
Due to the ongoing Tram works, if you are going to travel by car, please check with the City of Edinburgh Council for up to date information.
From the Ring Road (A720), take the A8 into town. It's literally a straight road, with a simple left turn into Grosvenor Street.
Parking on Edinburgh streets can be very expensive. The nearest NCP car park is Morrison Street. The Hilton Edinburgh Grosvenor offer a discounted daily rate of £7.50 for this car park.
If you're bringing your car, but want to avoid the fun of city centre driving, then why not utilise one of Edinburgh's many Park and Ride facilities.
