Services on the A90

Below is a list of all the signposted services on the A90 between Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

The following roads meet the A90, and also have services guides on this website: M9 and the M90.


Northbound only. No HGVs. Two sites located between junctions, with no public connection between them.  Northbound between Forfar and Brechin, Angus, DD8 3QD. (Google Maps)
Peggy Scott'sSpar ExpressThe Finavon Hotelwebsite
Notes: This is another service area which has had a junction built around it. Originally it was located off a dangerous staggered crossroads junction. Peggy Scott's is quite a new creation and only opened in about 2003. Before that Peggy Scott herself operated JG's Diner. J.G. were the first two initials of the gentleman who originally set up two restaurants – on at Inchture and the one at Finavon.

He then sold them in the 1990s to two different owners with Peggy buying this one and continuing to run it as JG's Diner for a few years. The Finavon site originally had a Texaco filling station as well but this was closed and bulldozed in the mid-1990s.

The restaurant and the shop for the filling station originally shared the same building until the shop closed with the filling station. In 2002 Peggy Scott then built a totally new building which opened in 2003 as Peggy Scott's instead of JG's. The new building lies just to the north of the old one.

Inside Peggy Scott's is new and clean-looking, and sports a small gift area and a very Scottish menu. The hotel is separate to Peggy Scott's, about 100 yards south.
