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.
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 on campus, from September to May inclusive.
Visitors are requested to enter the University via the main entrance, and, keeping to the left hand, Visitors' Lane, stop at the manned booth to collect a Visitors' Parking Permit. Please note that possession of a valid permit does not guarantee a parking space.
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.

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.
