Corbiewood Stadium

Scotland's only dedicated hard track for harness racing, Corbiewood Stadium is located at Muiralehouse, a half-mile (0.8 km) south of Bannockburn and 3 miles (5 km) south southeast of Stirling. Corbiewood was first developed in the early 1960s by haulage contractor brothers James and Daniel Taylor as a training track for their own horses. With the closure of a track in Stepps and another at Quarry Park (Stirling), Corbiewood was opened for regular race meetings in 1966.

Harness racing involves a single horse pulling a two-wheeled cart, called a sulky, on which the driver sits. It began as a sport in Britain in the mid-18th C, and was exported to the USA by the end of that century, where it is now rather more popular than in the UK.
