Station

Name and dates

Gourdon (1865-1951)

Opened on the Montrose and Bervie Railway.

Description

This was a single platform station with the platform on the south side of the line. There was a footbridge to the east and beyond that a loop with a goods yard siding serving a goods shed, the siding being approached from the north east.

The station was in the east of Gourdon.

Nothing remains of the station, it has been entirely built over with new housing. A large mill, [[Selbie Mill], was to the south of the station. This also has been replaced by new housing. The housing is largely sympathetic to the rest of Gourdon.
