Station

Name and dates

Gartmore (1882-1950)

Opened on the Strathendrick and Aberfoyle Railway.

Description

This was a single platform station with a small building. There was a passing loop which served a loading bank. The station was built to serve Gartmore House to the south. The platform was on the east side of the line with the signal box on the loading bank on the west side.

The station closed to passengers in 1950 and the line closed in 1959.

Little remains of the station although there is a railway cottage in use as a house. Just to the south the A81, when realigned, was made to cross the railway by means of a large concrete bridge. The bridge was built to cross a double track line.
