How to get there
Address: SUIP, Scion House, Stirling University Innovation Park, Stirling, FK9 4NF
By car: 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 come to a roundabout, go straight through then take first exit on left and follow the road up the hill towards the Wallace Monument. The Wallace Monument should now be on your RHS and the Innovation Park on your LHS. Take the A9 to the same roundabout and follow the same route through Bridge of Allan as above.
