Glengonnar Halt

The southwestern terminus of the Leadhills and Wanlockhead Railway, Glengonnar Halt is located in a steep cutting a half-mile (0.8 km) northeast of Wanlockhead, on the border of South Lanarkshire with Dumfries and Galloway. This tourist line represents the central section of a former light railway which once linked the two upland villages with the main-line at Elvanfoot. Few leave the train at this station, which is unfortunately isolated from any viable destination, preferring to make the return journey to Leadhills. Despite a wish to do so, it has thus-far proved impossible to extend the line to Wanlockhead owing to different regulations in Dumfries and Galloway and problems in establishing access rights to the land.
