This study day will provide training and education for nurses, GP's, and secondary care/community-based multidisciplinary team members, and includes the following topics:

Stirling Court Hotel is situated within the beautiful grounds of the University of Stirling campus, between Stirling and Bridge of Allan, right at the very 'heart of Scotland', and within the gaze of the historic Wallace Monument. Less than two miles away, dominating the skyline, is the spectacular Stirling Castle, from which one can gaze across Bannockburn, scene of Robert the Bruce's epic victory in 1314.
The 'bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond', and the rugged Highlands are easily accessible from Stirling's central location; the vibrant and cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh are each a mere 45 minutes' drive away.
Travelling by car:
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. The hotel is situated at the top of University Road W, just keep following the road straight up the hill.
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 at the hotel, from September to May inclusive and you should collect a token from reception to exit the car park.
All guests enjoy free parking at the hotel. Just be sure to visit reception and provide your car registration details as soon as you arrive. There is car parking available for 159 vehicles with three disabled spaces.
Travelling by rail:
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.
