The only services on the M90 and one of Moto's two Scottish ones, Kinross is really a tourist information centre in disguise. There's a small field to the side of the car park.

Trivia and History
Strictly speaking, Kinross is the most northern motorway service area in the UK. Broxden is slightly further north, and although the authorities have never considered it a motorway service area, they eventually gave in and allowed a sign to be placed on the M90. By our definition, that makes Broxden a motorway site and the new most northern.
It's reported that Granada acquired Kinross services in around 1985 after their managing director visited it while on a fishing holiday to Pitlochry. Granada immediately worked on plans to add a Granada Lodge, which is now the Travelodge. The HGV parking area here was originally a large caravan parking area.
In 2010, Moto announced plans to rebuild the entire service area, replacing the amenity building with something much more modern and at the same time moving the petrol station and re-organising the car park. Moto claimed it would have helped Kinross town take more advantage of tourism in the area.
As part of the work, a roundabout would have been added at the entrance to the services, which had been suggested for many years. The new building would have included eight retail units, which Moto claim would have been rented to businesses with the profits covering the costs of the new roundabout. A sign was erected encouraging prospective tenants to come forward. The work was due to be completed in 2013, but was postponed indefinitely. The sign is still there as of 2018, despite the postponement.
An M&S eventually opened inside the old building instead. A Greggs was positioned in a kiosk outside the entrance, opening on 3 March 2017.
