Location type

Station


Name and dates

Portpatrick (1862-1950)

Opened on the Portpatrick Railway.


Description

This station was the terminus of the line, although, by reversal at the north end of the station, a train could continue on to Portpatrick Harbour station.

This was a single platform station with two loops, sidings and a locomotive shed. After closure of the harbour line the platform was extended north onto the former trackbed.

After being replaced with a ground frame, the signal box was relocated to Barrhill.

The station yard is now housing and the station building has not survived, however two station cottages remain.
