The M876 motorway is a motorway in Scotland. The motorway runs from Denny to Airth in the Falkirk council area, forming an approach road to the Kincardine Bridge. It was opened in 1980.

The road is 8 miles (13 km) long. It begins by turning off the M80 and bypasses the towns of Falkirk and Stenhousemuir. It is one of only two motorways in the UK which form a concurrency with another motorway (the other being the M62 which concurs with the M60 Manchester Orbital motorway), the M9 which it then leaves again and continues for 1 mile (1.6 km) before ending on the A876[1].

The original Kincardine Bridge has been supplemented by a second bridge, (the Clackmannanshire Bridge) for traffic towards Alloa, which opened in 2008. As part of the works, the terminal roundabout was replaced with a Grade separated junction, and the A876 beyond the junction has been upgraded to dual carriageway standard .
