Gritting on motorways and trunk roads is handled by Transport Scotland. You can find out more about their gritters on the Transport Scotland winter service page

Grit bin and salt pile locations

Stirling Council provides grit bins and salt piles at various locations across the council area.

Bins are generally placed:

  • in areas away from priority gritting routes
  • in accessible places where it's easy to fill them
  • where they're most needed by pedestrians and motorists

Grit bins are refilled during or after spells of adverse weather.
