Burgadale is situated off the Moorfield loop road in the centre of Brae. Approaching from the main A970 north road through Brae, take the turning signposted for Sullom Voe Oil Terminal (B9076) in the centre of Brae by the leisure centre & Co-Op supermarket. Turn immediately first right on to the Moorfield ring road and follow the road straight on to the end where it continues around to the left. Pass the junction to Gallowburn on the right; Burgadale is the next turning on the left. Alternatively take the northernmost turning to the Moorfield loop road, Burgadale being the third turning on the right.
Once in Burgadale drive to the public parking area at the end of the cul-de-sac; No. 6 is the furthest house of the semi-detached pair of properties ahead of you.
