Name and dates

Glenwhilly (1877-1965)

Opened on the Girvan and Portpatrick Junction Railway.


Description

Glenwhilly was a station. The line and a passing loop remain open here. The southbound platform for Stranraer remains relatively intact but the northbound platform has been removed. There is a permanent way siding, at the north end, east side of the line, the remains of the goods yard.

It is a remote location in farmed moorland.

The main station building stood on the southbound platform and survived into the 1980s.

The signal box still stands on the southbound platform. Token exchanges still take place here.
