We had heard of the comic shop in Stirling and went into the arcade this morning. What a disappointment that the shop didn't open until 12 noon. Found this very strange that a shop doesn't open until 12 on a Saturday. We could hang around for hours waiting so just left, we had travelled up from Fife.

A lovely old fashioned shopping arcade with lots of small specialist shops. A good eatery also present.

The Stirling Arcade is well preserved and provides a little glimpse of what shopping would have been like in the 19th century. Unlike some of the other arcades we visited in Scotland (Inverness' comes to mind) Stirling's has not been overrun by tacky souvenir or cut-rate shops. There is an interesting looking cafe and we loved browsing #Hashtag.

Really nice Arcade. Some lovely shops inside with diverse products. Really good Coffe stop as well. Not at all what you might expect here.

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
