Getting to Stirling

Our location

The conference venue is the Macrobert Arts Centre, University of Stirling, FK9 4LA.

The University of Stirling's campus is located at the historic heart of Scotland, with convenient links to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the rest of the UK and beyond. Stirling boasts an excellent train service with fast and frequent trains from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness which connect with the national rail network across the UK.

Scotland’s two main international airports Edinburgh and Glasgow are less than an hour away by car and about 1 hour 30 min by public transport. A range of public transport options can link you from the airport to their respective city centres - including taxi, bus or tram - where you can access either train or coach services to Stirling.

The University campus is situated less than 3 miles from the Stirling city centre and can be accessed by foot, bike or regular bus service.
