Gatehouse of Fleet (1912-1965)
Opened on the Portpatrick Railway.
This was a two platform station with a loop on the single track Port Road line from Dumfries to Stranraer.
The station was some six and a half miles from Gatehouse itself. Due to the distance another station, Tarff, equally as far from Gatehouse of Fleet, was also known as Gatehouse from 1865 to 1871.
The station building remains in use as a house and the platforms are intact.
