The southernmost service area on the M1, formerly known as Scratchwood Services, located at the partially constructed Scratchwood Interchange between junction 2 and junction 4. The northern access to the services would also have formed the western terminus of the never-built Stirling Corner Link, which is why it takes the form of an unfinished roundabout; the net result is that southbound traffic is diverted the wrong way around the not-quite-a-roundabout in order to access the services.
