The only services on the M90 and one of Moto's two Scottish ones, Kinross is really a tourist information centre in disguise. There's a small field to the side of the car park.

Trivia and History

Opened by Mobil 1982?
Acquired by Granada 1985?
Re-branded Moto 2001

Strictly speaking, Kinross is the most northern motorway service area in the UK. No such point is ever simple and in this case Broxden is further north and it does have a sign on the motorway, but Broxden isn't officially a motorway service area so Kinross holds on to its title.

Kinross was one of the first motorway service areas not to provide any breakdown facilities.

It was reported that Granada acquired Kinross services in around 1985 after their managing director visited it while on a fishing holiday to Pitlochry. Granada immediately worked on plans to add a Granada Lodge, which opened in 1987 and is now the Travelodge.

The HGV parking area here was originally a large caravan parking area. At the back of the car park is an ancillary building which was previously a craft store, and is now used as a dog groomers - certainly unique for a motorway service area.

In 2010, Moto announced plans to rebuild the entire service area, replacing the amenity building with something much more modern and at the same time moving the petrol station and re-organising the car park. Moto claimed it would have helped Kinross town take more advantage of tourism in the area.

As part of the work, a roundabout would have been added at the entrance to the services, which had been suggested for many years. The new building would have included eight retail units, which Moto claim would have been rented to businesses with the profits covering the costs of the new roundabout. A sign was erected encouraging prospective tenants to come forward. The work was due to be completed in 2013, but was postponed indefinitely. The sign is still there as of 2018, despite the postponement.

An M&S eventually opened inside the old building instead. A Greggs was positioned in a kiosk outside the entrance, opening on 3 March 2017.
