Stonehaven railway station serves the town of Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, United Kingdom. Despite its small size, it is a calling point for a large number of services going both North to Aberdeen and South to Edinburgh and Glasgow. Additionally, a service operating only between Aberdeen, Portlethen and Stonehaven has operated since the winter of 2008.

History[edit]

The station was opened as part of the Aberdeen Railway on 1 November 1849. This later became part of the Scottish North Eastern Railway and then the Caledonian Railway. The North British Railway began serving it in 1883, with the opening of the line from Arbroath to Kinnaber Junction via Montrose - this has been the only route south since the closure of the original main line to Perth via Coupar Angus in September 1967.

Services[edit]

Trains on both the Edinburgh to Aberdeen Line and the Glasgow to Aberdeen Line call here, though some services to/from Glasgow skip this station outside peak periods. Four East Coast Trains services also call each way (Mondays - Saturdays) (three from London Kings Cross, the other to/from Leeds) along with the one through CrossCountry Trains service between Aberdeen and Penzance via Birmingham New Street and the Caledonian Sleeper to London Euston.
