Description

This was the short lived Aberdeen terminus of the Great North of Scotland Railway.

Kittybrewster was to the north of the city and was never intended to be the terminus.

It closed with the opening of the Aberdeen Waterloo Extension (Great North of Scotland Railway). The location was close to today's road bridge. Nothing remains of this station. To the west of the station was a goods shed and possibly an engine shed. It was replaced by Kittybrewster [1st] on the Waterloo Extension.

On the opening of the Denburn Valley Line (Great North of Scotland Railway) a station was opened at Kittybrewster [2nd] which may occupy some of the same site.
