Airth Road was a railway station serving Airth in the Scottish county of Stirlingshire.

History[edit]

The station was opened on the Alloa Branch of the Scottish Central Railway, just after it became part of the Caledonian Railway. In 1923 it became part of the London Midland and Scottish Railway during the Grouping of 1923. The station then passed on to the Scottish Region of British Railways on nationalisation in 1948.

The station was then closed by the British Transport Commission.
