Name and dates

Struan (1863-1965)

Opened on the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway.


Description

This was a two platform station just west of the Garry Viaduct. The platforms remain here, out of use, and there are some Highland Railway style worker's cottages.

The main station building was on the northbound platform, with a smaller example on the southbound. The station had a loop. North and south signal boxes opened in 1885. The north box was to the west and on the south side of the line and south box alongside the main station building.

The line was doubled between Blair Atholl and Dalnacardoch Signal Box in 1900. The boxes were replaced with a single box, on the west side of the main station building.

There was a goods yard at the west end of the station with sidings on either side of the line and a goods shed to the south. Sidings were approached from the east.

In 1965 the station closed to passengers. The signal box, sidings and crossovers were removed.

The line was reduced to a single track in 1966 with the northbound line being lifted. It was redoubled in 1978.

Just to the south is the Struan Inn.
