How to get to the EWNS2 Workshop at the Cottrell Building, University of
Stirling is located right in the centre of Scotland, as can be seen from
Stirling is roughly equidistant from both Glasgow and Edinburgh Airports.
The best way to get to the University from either is to get to the appropriate
railway station, then take a train to Stirling.
From Glasgow Airport this is best accomplished by
From Edinburgh Airport
Either take a taxi to Glasgow Queen Street station (about UK pounds
12), or take an "airport express" bus (every 30 minutes), taking about
20-40 minutes into town, and ask to be let off near Queen Street station,

Take a train to Stirling. These are about every half hour, and take about
1 hour, costing about UK pounds 5.
If you are travelling from elsewhere in the UK, the easiest way to get
to Stirling is by train. There are direct trains from London, Edinburgh,
Glasgow and Aberdeen. Or you can change at Edinburgh or Glasgow to get
there from the South.
Getting to the University from the station
A taxi from the station is easiest, and costs about UK pounds 4. Taxis
are available at the station itself. Alternatively, walk up the street
immediately facing you as you leave the station, cross the road, turn left,
and take a bus to the University. These busses are frequent (every 10 mins
or so) and cost about UK pounds 0.90. The bus goes right into the University:
you should leave at Queens Court (at the roundabout at the top of the hill).
Stirling is well served by the Motorway from the south, or by the A9 from
the North. Leave the Motorway at its junction with the A9 near Dunblane,
and take the road to Bridge of Allan. Drive through Bridge of Allan: the
University is just at the end of Bridge of Allan on the left.
