Kennishead Railway Station


(Ceann-Ceanais )

Kennishead Railway Station (known in Gaelic as Ceann-Ceanais) lies on the Glasgow South Western Line in Kennishead, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) north northwest of Carnwadric in Glasgow City. Comprising two platforms connected by a pedestrian overbridge, this station was built by the Glasgow, Barrhead & Kilmarnock Joint Railway and opened in 1848. There are no buildings, just utilitarian passenger shelters. Now operated by ScotRail, Kennishead Railway Station is unstaffed and was used by 62,120 passengers per annum in 2016-17, a notable increase from 48,688 in 2009-10. It is preceded by Pollokshaws West, 1¼ miles (2 km) to the northeast, and followed by Priesthill & Darnley Railway Station, a half-mile (1 km) to the west.
