This historic little station has so much charm and character, it’s many platforms buildings and waiting areas are of a time gone by❤️

Lovely architecture. It's clean and well run actually worth a look even if you are not travelling by train. Good service by staff when I had to purchase the tickets over the counter instead of using the machine.

The normal tables and chairs are fine. The worktop type table by the window is too low and the stools are too high. ( I guess to make it level with the low windowsill ) As my receipt was on WH Smith paper, I have...More

It is a countryside station, with free toilets - a rarity. Staff is helpful. I am required to add characters but I cannot find anything else to say.

While we found this station functioning well, it’s more a means of travel than a destination in itself. The building looks older and nicely-built, and works like a regular train station.

We asked last the station whilst walking g into town from our hotel. Great location, brightest to the town centre and main bus routes with stops across the road. Plenty of parking spaces.

Really, it's a very average railway station, there's nothing special about it at all. The parking is either a few feet away, or a block away, and the coffee shop is perfectly adequate, but nothing to get excited about one way or the other.

Was in the Stirling coffee house at the station and the staff member was friendly and dealt well with a few less than desirable patrons. She deserves a raise friendly and kept customers safe
