Name and dates

Esslemont (1861-1952)

Opened on the Formartine and Buchan Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station for much of its existence, a loop and second platform being added in 1919. The station was around 1 km south east of Esslemont itself.

There was a goods yard at the south end, west side of the line, approached from the south.

The loop was short lived and was taken out in 1925. The station closed in 1952 and the line in 1979.

The station building remains intact, in use as a house. The northbound platform is largely intact and the southbound less so and overgrown.
