Does anyone have any up to date information on car boot sales in the Stirling area? I'm aware of there being one at Kildean on Sundays but I can't find information about it online anywhere. I've got a whole load of stuff that I need to get rid of and I've been doing ebay for some of it but some of it really isn't worth ebaying, by the time you add on postage or take ebays extortionate fees into account :rolleyes:

The kind of information I'm looking for is: How much is a pitch? What time do you turn up for selling?

Thanks in advance!

    I did Kildean about 16 years ago (think it was that one), turned up at 6am to set up, unbelievably busy at that time! Pitch was £5, but prob double that now? Below says open at 9am, so they might have changed the rules. I would phone Stirling Council for more details.

  • I did it about 6 months ago but can't remember much about it, sorry! You do have to get there early - think we got there about 7-ish which was OK but it's really just luck whether you get stuck in a corner beside a stinking pile of manure :rolleyes: or in a busier area. It's over by about 12:30. Pitch fees are now £10 I think. (Told you I was vague about the details!)

    Why not get up early tomorrow and do a reccy with a vew to doing a sale in a couple of weeks when it's warmer/drier?

    There used to be one at Corbiewood but I don't know if that's still going or not.
    If I hadn't seen such riches, I could live with being poor...
  • I have done carboots in west coast area a few times and have found that I got best results around Easter or May holiday weekends.
    Just found this site.

  • Even better is www.carbootsrus.com Just click on the map of Scotland. It's free to join up to see the Scotland page and there are about 100 car boots listed there.
