Merryton railway station is a railway station in Larkhall, Scotland. The station is managed by Abellio ScotRail and lies on the Argyle Line.

The station was officially opened on 9 December 2005, as part of the Larkhall branch re-opened at the same time.

The station is located on the CR Mid Lanark Lines just south of the site of the previous Merryton Junction where the Caledonian Railway Coalburn Branch diverged from the CR Mid Lanark Lines.

Facilities[edit]

The station has a car park but is not permanently staffed.[1]

Services[edit]

From the opening of the Larkhall Branch in December 2005, a service has operated on Monday to Saturdays to Dalmuir via Glasgow Central northbound and to Larkhall southbound every 30 minutes. In the May 2016 timetable, this now runs to Milngavie in the northbound direction but still originates from Dalmuir going south.[2]

In December 2007 an hourly service (in each direction) commenced on Sundays. This runs to Larkhall and to Balloch via Clydebank.
