Motherwell

Road: Leave the M74 at Junction 6 and head towards Motherwell. At the first set of lights that you come to turn right onto Airbles Road. From the East, take the Motherwell exit from the M8 westbound and follow the directions towards the town - look out for a left turn indicated for football traffic, there is no need to approach the town centre. Street parking around the stadium is sufficient.

Public Transport: Airbles station is the closest to the ground, but is only served by a local service train. You are more likely to end up instead at Motherwell Central station, which is around about a 15 minute walk away from the ground. You exit the train station facing the main shopping street in the direction of the ground; go straight along it through the shopping precinct/centre; past the shopping centre car park, which leads to an underpass; go under the underpass, up the stairs and turn right; go straight on and the large stand gradually comes into view from behind Wilsons Furniture Store. The road splits at this point with away fans, and those going into the old seated terrace going to the left and all other fans to the right. Away fans walking from Motherwell should note, that the road to the away end is a long and winding one (you think you're there when you see the stand, but it takes about another 5 minutes to access it), so you should allow plenty of time.

St Mirren

Road: Follow signs for Paisley and Glasgow Airport. Exit the M8 at junction 29 9St James’ Interchange) which is just after Glasgow Airport turn off if travelling east to west. Be careful not to exit onto the A737 which is signposted for Irvine. It is best to stay in the middle lane when passing the airport as this leads naturally to the St James’ Interchange exit. At the interchange take the first left onto a duel carriageway with some football parks on the left hand side. Follow this road and after a sharp right hand bend you should now be in Greenock Road. Then take your first right onto Clark Street and drive to the end of the street which is the junction with Greenhill Road, turn left and you will see the stadium on the opposite side of the road.
