Open on the West Highland Line.


Description

This is an island platform station, typical of the West Highland line. The station building was demolished due to subsidence but was of the Swiss chalet style typical of the line. Access is via a subway. The signal box remains in use as a waiting shelter.

There is a goods yard, now used for permanent way, on the east side of the station, served from the south.

The stationmaster's house, typical of the line and a railwayman's cottage just north of the goods yard still exist. Both are now private houses.

By walking north to Inverarnan the West Highland Way can be reached. This may be followed north to Crianlarich or south by Loch Lomond's east bank.
