From Edinburgh, approach on the main A90 (Queensferry Road). Take the exit for the B924 marked Dalmeny / S.Queensferry. Once on the B924 follow ahead until reaching a sign for the station, and turn left. Continue on this road for a short distance and turn right, following the sign for the station. Continue ahead, past the station, through a mini roundabout, and QHS is situated on your left.
From Fife, leave the main A90 at the large roundabout, following the signs for South Queensferry. At the next roundabout, turn left onto the B907, again following the signs for South Queensferry. Carry on down the B907 until you see Dalmeny railway station signposted, then turn right here onto Ashburnham road. Before you reach the railway station, QHS is situated on your right.
From Glasgow/Falkirk Enter South Queensferry by the M9 spur, exiting onto the large roundabout before the Forth Road Bridge. Take the 3rd exit and follow the signs for South Queensferry. Carry on down the B907 until you see Dalmeny railway station signposted, then turn right here onto Ashburnham road. Before you reach the railway station, QHS is situated on your right.
QCHS is very easy to commute to by rail. Dalmeny train station is situated only a couple of minutes walk from the school.
First Scotrail provide four trains per hour between Edinburgh and Dalmeny throughought the day. This drops to two per hour in the evening.
From Edinburgh, Haymarket or South Gyle, join a Fife bound train heading for Glenrothes, Cowdenbeath, Markinch, Kirkcaldy or Cardenden. All of these services stop at Dalmeny station.
When alighting at Dalmeny, continue down the main station ramp. QHS is easily visible on your left.
- Note that many Fife bound services display "Edinburgh Waverley" or "Newcraighall" as their destination, which can be slightly confusing as this is in the wrong direction! This is because most trains actually travel in a full circle around Fife, returning to Edinburgh or Newcraighall as their final destination.
From Fife, Perth and The North, join a service heading for Edinburgh Waverley or Newcraighall, but make sure that it calls at Dalmeny as there are many express services which do not stop. The best place to change from an express to a local service is at Inverkeithing or Kirkcaldy station.
When alighting at Dalmeny, continue over the station footbridge, and then down the main station ramp on your right. QHS is visible on your left from here.

The number 43 and X43 bus from Edinburgh is a half hourly service, and very conveniently stops right outside the school fence on Ashburnham road. Look out for the bus passing under Dalmeny railway station, and alight at the next stop.
