This is worth a visit if you are in Stirling as it's very quaint with a nice selection of independent shops. The main issue I have found is that the majority don't open on a Sunday, which must be losing them loads of trade!! The shops seems to change hands on a pretty regular basis so we often go in...

I've seen quite a few arcades like this one in different towns, so I expect to see an interesting range of non-standard shops, and that was certainly the case here. It is attractive with light coming from the roof and nice flooring. To be honest I would be very unlikely to buy anything in any of the shops, but there... More

Like a small forgotten world. Feels creepy and unwelcoming. I've never seem as many people there as there are in the photo. They must have bussed in extras!

Walked through here but was disappointed with the shops inside . I wasn't tempted to venture in any, thought it was a waste of a chance to display the best of Stirling

I've been in and out the Arcade for years and it's one of my favourite places! It has a variety of boutique shops which my wife loves and I think the food in the new edition Monterey Jacks and the smaller cafe Roots has been incredible. I've tried both several times. It's definitely a great place to go for something... More

This is a lovely area for wandering not sure the selection of shops cater for everyone but they are all individual and one of so they wont appeal to everyone. The setting is nice the cafes and eateries seem to be taking over but this place has so much potential. Come on Stirling council you need to bring Stirling up... More

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
