Station


Name and dates

Benderloch (1903-1966)

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


Description

This was a two platform station. The station had a large two storey station building, typical of the line, on the southbound platform and a large size signal box, also typical of the line. An example of the main building still stands in largely unmodified form at Duror. The southbound line was the faster line, the northbound curving off at each end to form the loop.

There was a goods yard to the south, on the east side of the line, reached by reversal.

Not long after closure the buildings, with the exception of the railway cottages, were demolished. The platforms remained intact until the 1980s when the trackbed was infilled.

To the west is the large and sandy Tralee Bay.
