Event organisers of Sruighlea, Stirling’s Summer Festival which incorporates Stirling Highland Games are looking forward to welcoming up to 8,000 visitors and locals alike to Stirling Sports Village over Saturday August 18th.
With limited parking at the event and so much on over the same weekend FVSE, the social enterprise that’s delivered the event since 2014 and provides practical learning opportunities at the event for young people, has been engaged in discussions with Stirling Council and the AA since early 2018 on how it can accommodate this year’s traffic congestion.
With new signage now being scheduled to be displayed on the motorways advising visitors driving to the festival to come off at Junction 9 only and follow the A91 around to the Stirling Sports Village, it is hoped to alleviate some of the congestion at junction 10.
To reduce congestion at Stirling Sports Village itself and dependant on which way drivers are travelling, there will be AA signage on the A91 advising drivers to either use Kerse Road as an alternative route to access Forthside Car Park or use Springkerse Park & Ride Car park if arriving from the opposite direction. It’s only a short walk from either of these additional car park locations to Sruighlea.
