Name and dates

Lhanbryde (1858-1964)

Opened on the Inverness and Aberdeen Junction Railway.

Description

This was a one platform station just south of the town of Lhanbryde. The platform was on the north side of the line. The station building, typical of the line, remains standing in use as a house.

There was a goods yard at the west end of the station, approached from the east.

A signal box, opened in 1887, was on the south side of the line opposite the goods yard turn out.

The station closed to passengers in 1964. The goods yard closed in 1966. The site is now a car showroom.

Lhanbryde has been bypassed by the busy A96 which has separated the former station from the town.
