Trivia and History

Dumbarton Gateway tourist information.
The former tourist information centre is now home to Masala Twist.

What's now the north-westbound services was originally a nursery. It became a pair of garages in the 1960s.

The Dumbarton branch of Little ChefHistory opened here in around 1983, replacing the bypassed Clydebank branch. In 1988 it was joined by a Little Chef Lodge, now Travelodge.

The Little Chef closed in January 2012, as part of a crackdown on under-performing restaurants. It was later taken over by Euro Garages, becoming a Starbucks. The former tourist information centre has since become Masala Twist.

A car dealership is accessed through the westbound services.

The eastbound pub-restaurant used to be part of the Crown Carveries pub chain with the pub being known locally as ‘The Stonefield’. This closed in 2020 and became part of the Black Rooster Peri Peri chain of restaurants with the new restaurant opening on Thursday 24 September 2020.
