Sandwiched between two motorways, Stirling is a small site not just because it's short on space, but because it's also quiet. The roundabout it's off is quite complex, offering travellers no less than a mind-boggling six exits and two no-entries.

Trivia and History
There used to a property here called Snabhead, which was cut off by the motorways and served by a new, long driveway from the Bannockburn Roundabout. That property closed in the late 1970s, and its exit went on to be used by the new services.
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.
