Name and dates

Guay (1863-1959)

Opened on the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway.

Description

This was a one platform station, on a single track mainline, with a timber station building. The platform was on the east side of the line. The small village of Guay was to the north east, some of which has been obliterated by the building of the modern A9. At its site, the line follows the east bank of the River Tay.

North of the station was an occupational level crossing.

There was a goods yard, a pair of sidings, to the south, on the east side of the line and accessed from the south.

Until 1903 there was a signal box on the east side alongside the goods yard turn out.

The station closed in 1959.

Portions of the platform and loading bank can still be traced.

The station was relatively close to Dalguise which was to the south but on the west side of the River Tay.
