Brotherton (Private)

Opened on the Montrose and Bervie Railway.


This was a private halt to the east of Brotherton Castle. It had a single timber platform on the west side of the line with wooden steps climbing the high bank to its west.

Mike Mitchell notes in his 'The Montrose and Bervie Railway' that the halt was for the use of the Scott family. Michael Quick comments in his chronology, citing the NBR Study Group Journal, that 'trains could be stopped on written request of Mrs Scott'.
