Car parking at Dr Gray's

Dr Gray's Hospital is situated in the west end of Elgin, at the end of the High Street. The main access to the hospital is located on the main A96 Aberdeen to Inverness road.

There are a limited number of parking spaces at Dr Gray's Hospital, so please try to avoid bringing your car. If you need to bring your car, please allow extra time to find a parking space. There are other ways to get here including public transport, cycling and car sharing.

General information about parking

Once you have parked your car and before entering the hospital, you should get a parking ticket from a nearby ticket machine. Display this ticket in your car's windscreen or dashboard.

There are three types of parking for patients and visitors, each area is clearly signposted:

  • Short stay car parks
  • Long stay car parks 
  • The 'drop off' parking area

Patients who have been unexpectedly delayed at hospital should tell ward/clinic staff that they have a car in the car park as soon as possible.

Inpatients only: Due to the pressure on car parking space at the hospital, please do not park in the car park for the duration of your stay in hospital. However, if this is unavoidable, please tell the ward staff on your arrival so that they can inform the car park attendants.


The hospital cannot accept responsibility for cars or belongings left in hospital grounds. Please do not leave valuables on display within your car at any time.

Disabled parking

Designated disabled parking spaces are available close to the hospital buildings. If you are a disabled badge holder, please make sure your badge is clearly displayed.
Disabled badge holders must not park on double yellow lines within the complex. This restriction is to allow continual access for emergency vehicles, including fire engines. 

Disabled parking badges should only be used when the driver is disabled, or if the disabled person is a passenger in the vehicle. If neither apply, you should not display the disabled parking badge in your vehicle and you should not occupy any of the disabled parking spaces.

Important information

The following applies to all car park users:
  • You must only park in spaces for patients.  
  • You could receive a civil penalty fine if you park inappropriately (on double yellow lines, in a disabled space without valid permit, in medical emergency spaces, across multiple bays, etc), or if you do not have a correctly dated parking ticket clearly displayed on your windscreen or dashboard.
