SimplyFixIt Forrest Road

Repairs during lockdown

During the lockdown we are still carrying out essential IT repairs at our Forrest Road store. Technicians are working in the store from Monday to Friday, 9am – 6pm. If you need your device repaired, you can drop your device off at any time while they are there. Unfortunately, we cannot let you enter the premises. That rule applies even if it’s raining, so I would advise that you call from your car once you are outside. You can reach the store on 0131 549 8820.

Please download and print this form, so that we have all the information that we need. If you don’t have a printer, don’t worry. We can provide you with the form when you arrive. But remember, we can’t let you on the premises. I’m sorry, but this is the only way that we can carry out the repairs.

On the 5th July 2010, we opened the fourth SimplyFixIt repair centre on Forrest Road, in the heart of the old town. It’s located just at the end of George IV bridge, beside the Greyfriar's Bobby statue. SimplyFixIt Forrest Road is in a great location for those who work in town. You can pop into the shop to or from work, for a quick chat with one of our friendly technicians. Or if you would prefer to just drop your broken / damaged laptop or iPhone on the way to work and then collect it that evening, that’s fine too. We can repair cracked iPhone or iPad screens, water damaged Apple Macs, or broken laptops with a fast turn-around service right in the city centre of Edinburgh.

SimplyFixIt at Forrest Road is rated 4.7 out of 5, by 327 customers.

About the area:

SimplyFixIt Forrest Road featured our first dedicated Apple iPhone & iPad repair centre. It wasn't long before our SimplyFixIt Forrest Road team gained Apple Certified Mac Technician status, making us the only computer repair store in Edinburgh to have both Certified Microsoft Technicians and Certified Apple Technicians working under the same roof.


The shop itself sits on the border of 2 roads; Forrest Road and Greyfriar's Place. It occupies the spot where Traill's Temperance Coffee House (The Eating Place) used to be. This is famous for being the cafe where Greyfriar's Bobby was fed every day while he tended his master's grave. You can read a lot more about Greyfriar's Bobby on our dedicated Greyfriar's Bobby webpage
