Bridge of Allan Railway Station


(Drochaid Ailein)

Bridge of Allan Railway Station (Gael: Drochaid Ailein) is situated a half-mile (0.8 km) west northwest of the centre of Bridge of Allan and 1¼ miles (2 km) west northwest of the University of Stirling in Stirling Council Area. Bridge of Allan's first station was opened in 1848 on the Scottish Central Railway, but closed in 1965 a victim of railway rationalisation. However a new station was opened nearby on the 13th May 1985 to serve the demand from commuters. Now operated by ScotRail and unstaffed, Bridge of Allan Station is used by more than 275,000 passengers annually (2016). Comprising two platforms with modern passenger shelters, it serves both the Edinburgh to Dunblane Line and the Croy Line, with trains from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Perth. It is preceded by Stirling Railway Station, 2¾ miles (4.5 km) to the south southeast, and followed by Dunblane, 2¼ miles (3.5 km) to the north.
