Quaint variety of little shops by local traders not big brand names, very charming place clean and a great place to check out if you like old victorian style market arcades

The shops here are independent stores which makes a nice change as you can pick up some unique things. However they do seem to change a lot - there used to be 2 clothes shops I liked and both closed after a few months. Yet as the goods are mostly overpriced this isn't surprising. The Italian restaurant and Roots cafe... More

Shopping in the Stirling Arcade is what makes Stirling different from all the other towns - the unique and independent businesses make a pleasant change from the chainstores and multi-branch outlets common on every high street. The Stirling Arcade is brilliant for items that you won't find anywhere else, and for peace and quiet away from the noise of busy... More

The Stirling Arcade is right beside the Thistle Shopping Centre, and in comparison to the Thistle's it is anything but a 'centre'. There are a few shops and as a Stirling local I often use it as a quick rat run from one street side to the other. It is always quiet and great if you are running late for... More

I have visited Stirling Arcade on 3 occasions and find it great. A very good variety of shops selling stuff we all need i.e. Ink to Beautiful gifts, Clothes, Comics even Bicycle stuff. Also a wonderful centre piece Italian Cafe Restauant. I can only assume the two negative reviews are from people who hold a grudge. Well the reviews are... More

I spent a lot of my time shopping in Stirling. Each time near I feel the need to look in the arcade for something different. But every time it never fails to disappoint. Shops are dated and hold little if any stock!! It's a shame really as it could be an amazing shopping experience. I think whoever runs its needs... More

Living in Falkirk I very rarely have the opportunity to shop in Stirling, to be honest I didnt see why I should, you find all the same shops in the bland and boring thistle centre as you do in the howgate centre. So I wasnt expecting much from my recent trip, that was until I discovered Stirling Arcade. From the... More
