Getting here

By Car: We encourage everyone coming to the event to use sustainable transport; however we recognise that for some journeys a car may be necessary.  Parking is available at the hotel as well as the surrounding car parks within the university (free parking at the hotel or payment by coin / card for university parking).

If approaching from the East, South or West take the M9 to Junction 11. Once at the junction there is a roundabout which marks the end of the M9. From here you should take the exit for Bridge of Allan, follow the road through the town itself, and after about 200 metres you will find the University on the left.

If approaching from the North take the A9 to the same roundabout (Junction 11) and follow the same route through Bridge of Allan as above.

From the North A9 via Perth and Bridge of Allan.
From the East A91 from St Andrews, M9 from Edinburgh.
From the South M74, M73, A80, M80, M9.
From the West M8, A80, M80, M9 from Glasgow.

By Rail: Regular services run from Edinburgh and Glasgow.  Those travelling from the North can get to Stirling via Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth.

It is recommended that you alight at Stirling or Bridge of Allan train station and then make your way to the University by bus or taxi. Taxis are available from Stirling Rail Station concourse, with most buses to the University departing from Murray Place bus stop located just up the hill from the rail station.

By Air: You can fly to either Edinburgh or Glasgow Airports from a wide range of international and domestic airports. Also, there are very regular shuttle flights to both Glasgow and Edinburgh from London.

Frequent coach transfers are available from each of the two airports to their respective city centres. From there, visitors can access the frequent and reliable train services which run to Stirling from both Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Edinburgh Airport is a 45 minute drive away, while Glasgow Airport is approximately a 1 hour 20 minute drive to the University of Stirling.

By Bus: The University of Stirling is served by excellent bus links from Stirling city centre, with buses running every 20 minutes approximately.  Most bus services to the campus run from either just outside Stirling’s Rail Station or a two minute walk away, in Murray Place, making it possible to enjoy an easily integrated public transport journey to the campus.

FirstBus operate the following services to the University – Unilink (UL), 54, 54A, 58, 62 and 63.
