Advie railway station served the village of Advie, Morayshire, in Scotland.

History[edit]

Opened by the Strathspey Railway (GNoSR), it was absorbed by the Great North of Scotland Railway. Then station passed on to the London and North Eastern Railway during the Grouping of 1923. Passing to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948, it was then closed by the British Railways Board.

The site today[edit]
