John Menzies Bookstall - Stirling
Stirling station was designed by the architect James Miller who also co-designed Wemyss Bay Station. In 1913 it was confirmed that Stirling station would be expanded and rebuilt to his design. This new design was opened on 1 January 2015.
On platform 2 can be seen a magnificent clock. Similar clocks were also to be found on platforms 3, 6 and 9. Sadly at some point during the late 1980s the clocks were removed. The platform bookstall, in a semi-circular design, was run by John Menzies. However in 1998 John Menzies sold its retail arm to W H Smith who then took over the running of the bookstall.
A pillar box dating from the reign of Edward VII stands next to the bookstall. Collections were made from the box on Monday to Friday at 08.00, 11.45, 18.00 and on Saturday at 08.00, 11.45.
