Wemyss Bay (1905-)
Opened on the Greenock and Wemyss Bay Railway.
Opened on the Caledonian Steam Packet Company.
Open on the Inverclyde Lines.
This is one of the pre-eminent 'must visit' stations in Scotland.
This station replaced an original station of 1865 on a slightly different orientation. It is a terminus and a combined station and pier with a very fine concourse, canopied platforms, main station building with a clock tower and covered walkway to the pier. The station benefited from the Caledonian Railway's awareness of passenger flows and how to design station to allow passengers to flow from ferry to train and vice versa.
The station and line to Wemyss Bay are promoted and supported by the Friends of Wemyss Bay .
Caledonian MacBrayne operate a car carrying ferry service to Rothesay Pier on the Isle of Bute.
