Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Milton of Crathes railway station is located at Milton of Crathes, three miles east of Banchory, Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, United Kingdom. Crathes Castle station, located 1/4 mile to the east of Milton of Crathes, was opened by the Deeside Railway in 1853 for the private use of the Laird of Crathes. In 1863 Crathes Castle was renamed Crathes and became a public railway station, a role it retained until the closure of the railway in 1966. Crathes station building is now privately owned and features a replica of the original signalbox, whilst the trackbed is owned by the local estate. The Royal Deeside Railway has no plans at present to re-use the old station which is in a less convenient position for today's tourist market and which is separated from the heritage railway by the entrance road to the Milton of Crathes site itself, as well as a missing overbridge and embankment.show more
