Getting to the Venue

By Car

We encourage everyone coming to the hotel to use sustainable transport, however we recognise that for some journeys a car may be necessary.

Visitors to the Stirling Court Hotel at the University of Stirling who choose to bring their car should note the following directions:

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. The hotel is situated at the top of University Road W, just keep following the road straight up the hill.

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.

Visitors to the University are advised that a vehicle access barrier system operates at the hotel, from September to May inclusive and you should collect a token from reception to exit the carpark. All of our guests enjoy free parking at the hotel. Just be sure to visit reception and provide your car registration details as soon as you arrive.

By Rail

Our central location, at the very heart of Scotland, ensures that delegates and visitors enjoy excellent rail services to and from the city of Stirling. Regular services run from Edinburgh and Glasgow, which are both key interchanges for the rest of the UK national rail network. Those travelling from the North can get to Stirling via ScotRail services from Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee and Perth.

Visit ScotRail for fares, timetables and journey information.

Stirling Court Hotel is a pleasant walk from both Stirling city centre and from Bridge of Allan rail station. If travelling to the University by train you can get off the train at either Stirling rail station – a better option if you intend to continue your journey to campus by bus or taxi – or Bridge of Allan rail station, which is closer if walking / cycling to campus.

It is recommended that you alight at Stirling train station (not Bridge of Allan) 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.

If you are coming from further afield visit National Rail Enquiries for rail travel times to Stirling.

By Bus

The University of Stirling is served by excellent bus links from Stirling city centre. At peak times some 19 buses per hour run from Stirling to the main University campus. 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), 53, 54, 58, 62 and 63.

By Air

You can fly to either Edinburgh or Glasgow Airports from a wide range of international and domestic airports. It may be the case, however, that if you are flying in from a country that does not go direct to either of these airports that your journey will have to go via one of the London airports. 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 Stirling Court Hotel.

Stirling Rail Station – University of Stirling (Approx 40 minutes walk)

On exiting Stirling Rail station turn right and follow Goosecroft Road until its junction with Wallace Street. Turn right into Wallace Street (you will pass a large Tesco Store on your right).

At the end of Wallace Street follow the underpass footpath and then cross the historic Old Stirling Bridge over the River Forth. Carry straight on until you reach the pelican crossing at the junction of Cornton Road/Causeway head Road. Cross over at the crossing and then proceed straight along Causeway head Road (A9), passing under the railway bridge and, on the right, the entrance to Stirling County Rugby Club.

Continue straight on up Causeway head Road until reaching the Causeway head roundabout. Turn left at the Causeway head roundabout and follow the path along until reaching the pelican crossing at Wallace High School where you should cross to the pavement at opposite side of the road. Continue on the A9.

Thereafter you can opt to either access the University via: the entrance to the Scottish Institute of Sport (quite a steep climb, with the University’s sports facilities on your left) which takes you out opposite the main Cottrell Building car park the University’s main entrance (accessed by continuing past the turn off for the Scottish Institute of Sport).

At the main entrance you should cross over the road to access the footpath which runs from the main entrance to the campus itself. Bridge of Allan Rail Station – University of Stirling (Approx 25 minutes walk)

On alighting from your train make your way up to the A9 main road (road bridge crosses over the railway line). Once on the main road, turn right and make your way into the town of Bridge of Allan. Cross the road at the pelican crossing, located at the Allanwater Café, and then continue to make your way through the town.

Follow this route all the way through the town and out the other side. The main entrance to the University of Stirling is located approximately one mile after leaving Bridge of Allan. For delegates flying into Glasgow Airport we may be able to organise a pick-up and transport to Stirling.
