Description

Port of Menteith was briefly known as Cardross and was renamed to avoid confusion with the Glasgow, Dumbarton and Helensburgh Railway's station when it opened in 1858.

This was a two platform station of the typical style of the Forth and Clyde Junction Railway. The main station building survives as a residence.

As this station was some way from the Lake of Menteith, Port of Menteith, and the Port of Menteith Pier for Inchmahome Priory, to the north, there was a coach service from the station to the port.
