Kirkhill Railway Station

(Cnoc na Cille)

A suburban halt on the Newton Branch of the Cathcart Circle Line in South Lanarkshire, Kirkhill Railway Station (referred to as Cnoc na Cille in Gaelic) a quarter-mile (0.5 km) south of Cambuslang and a mile (1.5 km) west northwest of Flemington. The station opened in 1904, on the Lanarkshire & Ayrshire Railway, which was part of the Caledonian Railway system. The picturesque chalet-style station buildings have been demolished and the station is now unstaffed. Operated by ScotRail, it is used by 76,068 passengers per annum in 2016-17, which represents a decline from 98,280 in 2009-10. It is preceded by Burnside Railway Station, 1¼ miles (2 km) to the west, and followed by Newton, 30 miles (48 km) to the southwest.
