Names and dates

Bervie (1865-1926)
Inverbervie (1926-1951)

Opened on the Montrose and Bervie Railway.


This 1865 terminus was located close to the shore to the south east of Inverbervie. It had a single platform, on the west side of a loop, and a goods yard on the east side, approached, like the passenger station, from the south. The layout of the station was spacious.

There was a carriage siding off the loop, approached by reversing from the platform. A locomotive shed was reached from the goods yard and loop line at the south end of the station, on the east side. Inverbervie Shed was reached by reversing from the turntable.

A signal box opened in 1893. It closed in 1927.

The station closed to passengers in 1951 and the line closed completely in 1966.

Hallgreen Castle stands to the south of the site, overlooking the station and Bervie Bay where the Bervie Water reaches the sea.

The Kirk Burn carpark is the site of the goods yard, the passenger station site is backed by Hallgreen Road. A railway gatepost still stands by the station site entry, now a footpath.


National Cycle Route 1 follows the route of the former line south to Montrose.

The Grassic Gibbon Centre is three miles to the north west of the former station.
