Shopping and markets


The centre of Stirling's shopping area is well worth a visit. The city offers a unique shopping experience, with the combination of top brands and chains in the Thistles Shopping Centre, King's Street and Baker's Street; one-off boutiques in the Victorian Stirling Arcade.

Farmer's market

The farmer's market offers fresh local produce and artisan gifts.   The market is held on the second Saturday of every month in the pedestrianised Port Street.

Food and drink

There are lots of welcoming cafes and restaurants in the city, so you can have a break and enjoy some of the delicious produce the area has to offer while you people-watch and recharge your batteries.

Further afield

Away from the city centre of Stirling, there are wonderful gift and clothes shops, bakeries, cafes and farmers markets in surrounding towns and villages such as Bridge of Allan and Callander.


Forthside is Stirling’s waterfront development.  It has provided a multi-screen cinema, restaurants, a Premier Inn and residential developments.
