Greenan Siding

Opened on the Maidens and Dunure Light Railway (Glasgow and South Western Railway).


Description

This pair of sidings was to the east of Heads of Ayr [2nd]. The sidings were served from the east.

There was an unusually tall telegraph pole here, which appears in many photographs. This was on the north side of the line close to the A719 overbridge.

The trackbed east to Alloway and Ayr is now a footpath. Greenan Castle is to the north on the coast.
