Railway Station, Broughty Ferry

A railway station in the Dundee suburb of Broughty Ferry (referred to in Gaelic as Port Bhruachaidh) which is situated on the East Coast Main Line, but is used only by local services. Opened in 1838, on what was the Dundee & Arbroath Railway, this station is the oldest still operating in Scotland, although the buildings date from c.1900. Now operated by ScotRail, Broughty Ferry Station is unstaffed. It was used by only 5570 passengers in 2009-10, but this increased markedly to more than 43,000 (2015-16) following a campaign to improve services and make these more useful to commuters. Broughty Ferry is preceded by Dundee Railway Station, 3¾ miles (6 km) to the west, and followed by Balmossie Halt, 1½ miles (2.5 km) to the east northeast.
