A little bit about us

A former MSD research facility this 20-acre biotech incubator for Scotland is located in-between Glasgow and Edinburgh on the M8. Nestled in amongst landscaped gardens, and mature trees. Companies based here enjoy a break from work in ‘Nowhere’, a stylish coffeehouse co-working space with air hockey, a pool table, a gym, cosy lounge spaces and patio garden. Life science startups based here make use of the ample car parking, easy access to the M8, two airports and two local train stations only a short distance away.
