Station

Name and dates

St Cyrus (1865-1951)

Opened on the Montrose and Bervie Railway.

Description

This was a single platform station on the west side of the single track Montrose to Inverbervie railway.

There was a goods yard to the south, on the west side of the line, and approached from the south. This had a short loop within the yard.

The brick and timber station building, typical of the line, has not survived.

Much of the station has been obliterated with recent house building, but the railway cottage remains. Part of the platform (difficult to detect with infilling of the trackbed) and road overbridge to the north have survived.
