Station

Name and dates

Balnaguard Halt (1935-1965)

Opened on the Aberfeldy Branch (Inverness and Perth Junction Railway).

Description

This was a single platform halt with a timber platform and wooden waiting shed. The platform was on the south side of the line.

The halt was opened by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway as late as 1935, despite repeated calls for a halt.

Some of the cutting this was located in is still present, often lined with bagged bales. There are no obvious remains.
