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

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
