Name and dates

Grandtully (1865-1965)

Opened on the Aberfeldy Branch (Inverness and Perth Junction Railway).

Description

This was a one platform station with a small size Highland Railway timber building.

There was a small goods yard with a loading bank at the east end of the station and north side of the line. A goods shed was added in 1878.

The signal box was north of the goods turn out. The box closed in 1935, replaced with a ground frame.

The station remained open util line closure in 1965.

The site is now a carpark. The trackbed has been filled in in recent years but the platforms can still be seen. A railway cottage was at the east end of the yard. This cottage, dating from 1886, is gone.
