Station


Name and dates

Tannadice (1895-1952)

Opened on the Forfar and Brechin Railway.


Description

This was a single platform station, on the south side of the single track line, with a pair of sidings opposite the platform, approached from the east. There was a station building on the platform and station house to the west.

The platform still exists and the station house is now a private house.

The station site was not convenient for the village, being 1.5 miles away by road and to the west. Tannadyce House was much closer and to the south. This choice of location was probably not the best decision in the long term.

To the west the line passes south of the village (and close to it) and then crosses the River South Esk with a short viaduct.
