Uplawmoor railway station was a railway station serving the village of Uplawmoor, East Renfrewshire, Scotland as part of the Lanarkshire and Ayrshire Railway.
The station opened on 1 May 1903. It closed between 1 January 1917 and 2 March 1919 due to wartime economy, and closed permanently to passengers and freight on 2 April 1962. Upon closure, the nearby station Caldwell took on the name 'Uplawmoor'.
Although the station was closed to regular passengers, in 1964 the Royal Train was stabled here overnight during a visit to the area by the Queen Mother.
Sidings ran to the Shillford Quarry that was located to the east of the station within Uplawmoor Wood.
