Dunkeld & Birnam Railway Station


(Dùn Chailleann & Braonan)

A railway station on the Highland Line in Perth and Kinross, Dunkeld & Birnam (known is Gaelic as Dùn Chailleann & Braonan) lies next to the A9 Trunk Road, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) west of Birnam and a half-mile (1 km) south southeast of Dunkeld. Opened in 1856 on the Perth & Dunkeld Railway, it is now operated by ScotRail, and receives services from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Inverness. The picturesque stone-built station buildings are by Andrew Heiton (1823-94) and features a traditional slate roof and an awning suspended on cast-iron brackets. The buildings have been A-listed since 1971. There are two platforms, linked by a cast-iron footbridge, one on a passing loop on a line which is otherwise single-track. Dunkeld & Birnam Railway Station is unstaffed and was used by 32,878 passengers in 2016-17. It is preceded by Perth Railway Station, 12 miles (20 km) to the south southeast, and followed by Pitlochry, a similar distance to the north northwest.
