Buchanstone

Location type

Station

Name and dates

Buchanstone (1854-1868)

Opened on the Great North of Scotland Railway.

Description

This station was at Mill of Buchanstone, just north west of the Rettie cottages. There was a siding to the south of the line, served from the east, and a small building on the north side of the line.

The station closed in 1868.

The station seems to have been obliterated by the doubling of the line in 1888 from Inveramsay to Insch. No town or village developed here which probably led to its closure.

Oyne station was only a short distance to the east.

The line remains open. It was singled between Inverurie and Insch in 1969.
