Glenbuck

Location type

Station


Name and dates

Glenbuck (1876-1952)

Opened on the Muirkirk Branch (Caledonian Railway).


Description

This was a single platform station on the north side of a single track line. The station was south of Glenbuck itself and west of Glenbuck Loch. It was not particularly convenient for Glenbuck, just under a mile away by road.

There was a small goods yard to the west, approached from the east. A quarry siding was to the east, approached from the west.

The timber passenger platform remains, in poor condition.

To the east of the station the line crossed Glenbuck Loch on a causeway.

Glenbuck itself, long associated with coal mining and even the Glenbuck Iron Works, has been obliterated by opencast mining.
