Station


Name and dates

Appin (1903-1966)

Opened on the Ballachulish Branch (Callander and Oban Railway).


Description

This was a two platform station with a passing loop and goods yard to the west. There was a two storey station building on the southbound platform, of a style which survives largely unaltered at [[Duror],] and a large signal box. The southbound line was the faster line, the northbound curving off at each end to form the loop. At the south end, on the east side of the line, was a camping coach siding.

None of the buildings have survived. The platforms remain intact and the railway is now a long distance footpath.

Nearby is a long row of railway cottages, now in private ownership.

To the west is Castle Stalker and to the north west Caslte Shuna.

The name Appin refers to a large area, the station is at Portnacroish. Appin House is around a mile to the north.
