Craigendoran station

The deviation ran from west of Craigendoran station, through the station to Craigendoran Junction. Craigendoran Pier, to the south, was served by a third platform, a branch from Craigendoran Junction. The original alignment was abandoned.

The name Craigendoran comes from a farm which was located on the shore side of the original alignment.
