Wemyss Bay

Wemyss Bay station was lit-up blue to show solidarity with key workers and front-line NHS staff all across the country.

The beautifully restored station joined with other Network Rail stations and structures across the UK in lighting up in NHS colours to salute the dedication and efforts of healthcare workers in the battle against the coronavirus.

Wemyss Bay's location on Scotland’s west coast offers panoramic views over the Firth of Clyde, which ensured this show of solidarity with our NHS staff and key workers was visible locally and across to the southern islands of Argyle & Bute.

The £5m two-year refurbishment of Wemyss Bay station, which saw the canopies and glazed roof upgraded, repairs to the sea wall and improvements to the station buildings, was completed in 2016. It was voted best project in the National Rail Heritage Awards in 2017.
