Inverurie Railway Station


(Inbhir Uaraidh)

A railway station in Aberdeenshire, Inverurie (Gael: Inbhir Uaraidh) lies on the Aberdeen to Inverness Line, as it curves around the town a quarter-mile (0.4 km) northeast of the town centre. The original station here opened in 1854 on the Great North of Scotland Railway. This was located a short distance to the south and within two years Inverurie had become a junction, with a branch to Oldmeldrum, which closed in 1966. The present station was built in 1902 and its original buildings remain, now B-listed. A supermarket now occupies much of the site of the former locomotive works and goods yards which lay to the northwest. Now operated by ScotRail, Inverurie is staffed part-time. It has seen a remarkable growth in usage, from 292,408 passengers per annum (2010) to 534,000 (2015). Inverurie is the terminus for some trains originating in Edinburgh or Glasgow. It is preceded by Dyce Railway Station, 8½ miles (14 km) to the southeast, and followed by Insch, 10 miles (16 km) to the west northwest.
