Sandwiched between several motorways, Stirling is quite small, with a lack of outdoor facilities and a tiny petrol station. This is down to not only the shortage of space but also just how quiet the services are. The roundabout it's off is quite complex, offering travellers no less than a mind-boggling six exits and two no-entries.

Trivia

Inside the dining area.

With only three small services open in Scotland before Stirling, and all of them struggling, informal discussions with prospective developers were held to assess the demand and agree on what should be built at Stirling. Following approval from the government, the Granada lodge here was the first on a motorway.

In 1994 there were plans for a "factory outlet centre" here.

Survey Results

In 2006 the services won a four star loo award and came top in the category 'Scottish motorway services'.
