The Summer School will be taking place at the University of Stirling.

See https://stirlingvenues.com/ for information about the venue.

The information below was relevant to the last in-person summer school (in 2019) and we will update it as necessary for 2022 over the coming weeks.

From the south, a frequent train service to Stirling runs from Edinburgh Waverley or Glasgow Queen Street, both operated by ScotRail. Those starting north of Stirling probably already know how to get there. Use the National Rail Enquiries website for timetable information and ticket prices.

The UniLink and 54 bus services each run from the station to the University campus: follow the links for current timetables. You should alight at the first bus stop on the campus (University Road West) and walk up Hermitage Road to Willow Court (see below). The fare is around £3. Both cash and contactless payments are accepted.

See also the directions on the University of Stirling website.
