Station


Name and dates

Aberlour (1863-1965)

Opened on the Strathspey Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station.

One platform survives with a station building which has been greatly extended at the southern end.

When opened, this was a single platform station - the platform which has survived. The goods yard was at the north (or east) end of the station, approached from the north. The yard was progressively expanded with further sidings.

The loop and second platform were quite a late addition in 1910.

The station building remains, in use as a tearoom, and has been extended sympathetically. The second platform has been landscaped into an area of green and the goods shed has disappeared in recent years, now replaced with a public garden.

The town served is more properly called Charlestown of Aberlour.

A community run tea room operates from the station building. Aberlour Community Association
